You may remember meeting Mona Sallie in March, 2010, when local historian Kim Rush presented a program for GGRWHC on Grand Rapids women singing the blues. Mona will sing Sunday at 2pm with Kristi Sallie (Sounds of the Motor City). Before and after, catch the well-known Ann Godfrey, 6 Pak, Lin' Nowicki, Ruth Ann and the Invictas.
Since his program for us in 2010, Kim Rush has been busy with the West Michigan Music Hysterical Society. Sample the following articles and interviews on Ann Godfrey and 6 Pak; then roam the site!
