A TRIBUTE TO LADY DAY

Featuring Mary McClendon & Trio

Mary McClendon returns to the Lincoln in this tribute to Billie Holiday, a true artist and social giant. Mary is based in Columbus, singing and acting professionally for many years. She last visited Billie and her story in CATCO’s production of Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill, which ran seven weeks to standing room audiences. Remembering her creativity, phrasing, and dramatic flair, Mary hopes to keep Billie’s story alive for the next generation and generations to come.
