The Amp at Craig Ranch in North Las Vegas will host a blues concert featuring top female musicians in the roots rock and blues music genre, Vanessa Collier and Ana Popovic.
This high-energy concert showcases Ana’s mesmerizing guitar skills and Vanessa’s prowess on the saxophone, successfully merging musical styles. Tickets are on sale now via etix.
Vanessa Collier is an 8-time Blues Music Award nominee and 2-time Blues Music Award “Horn Player of the Year”. A 2013 graduate of the prestigious Berklee College of Music, she’s toured nationally and internationally, released three critically acclaimed albums (2014’s Heart, Soul & Saxophone, 2017’s Meeting My Shadow, and 2018’s Honey Up), and released her highly anticipated fourth album, Heart on the Line, to crowdfunders in May 2020. Honey Up spent 9 weeks atop the Billboard Blues Album Charts Top 15, 3 months on the Living Blues Charts at #10 and #23, and continues to be spun on B.B. King’s Bluesville station on SiriusXM radio.
Ana Popovic is best known as the “Serbian Scorcher” of blues guitar due to her fiery technique. For over 20 years Popovic and her band have toured tirelessly, sharing stages with luminaries like B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Jeff Beck, Joe Bonamassa, and more. She’s even been called “one helluva guitar-player” by Bruce Springsteen for her signature shredding.
