This Friday at 7pm the N’Namdi Center for Contemporary Art will host a Blues Night concert, with a tribute to Detroit’s Queen of Blues, Alberta Adams.  

Lily Adams, Alberta’s niece, is also a musician, and will honor her aunt by performing at the concert.

Lily lives full time in Nuremberg, Germany, where she performs and serves as a testament to the impact and longevity of American music. She has performed around the world and has returned to Detroit for a visit.
