Artist at Large Sari Schorr
From a beginning of working the music scene in the legendary fierce South Bronx of New York and the breeding ground for punk/new wave bands on Manhattan’s Lower East Side this operatically trained tornado stood her ground as a phenomenal Blues singer that would not be denied. Forgoing the easy money, she trudged the rugged road of the life of a hard-working Blues woman. Years of touring the US and Europe with Joe Lois Walker and Poppa Chubby brought Sari distinction and prominence throughout the Blues world. Celebrating recognition of her labor, Schorr was recently inducted into the New York Blues Hall of Fame. Rocking the stage, Sari appears to be in the calm eye of the storm as the room around her is twirled and twisted like a hurricane from her overwhelming performances. Just one visit with this emotionally-charged critically acclaimed performer will assure you that this vocal volcano is a real-deal Force of Nature.
