Vocalist Heidi Martin is one of D.C.’s treasures: She emits messages complex but clear, with an essence of mourning and resilience that hints at Billie Holiday and a quavering force not unlike Joni Mitchell’s. But as a poet, she’s most closely linked to Abbey Lincoln, that vocalist and composer whose ear was always turned toward the acridity of injustice—not just its effects, but the ways we push it aside by drilling down.

She performs at Blues Alley, which will broadcast the show over live stream, to celebrate Abbey Lincoln and stream some of her works in this time of crisis.

The link will be available once you purchase a stream pass.
