Queen Esther in Gettysburg National Military Park



BIG BLEND RADIO INTERVIEW: This episode of Big Blend Radio’s First Friday Toast to The Arts & Parks show features Queen Esther, who discusses her experience as the recent National Parks Arts Foundation artist-in-residence in Gettysburg National Military Park. This segment was recorded in early March 2020, while Queen Esther was on-site in Gettysburg, and features two of her latest recordings, “Oleander” and “The Whiskey Wouldn’t Let Me Pray.” Listen or download the podcast on BlogTalkRadio.com, Spreaker.com, YouTube.com, SoundCloud.com.

A member of SAG/AFTRA and AEA, Queen Esther’s work as a vocalist, lyricist, songwriter, actor/solo performer, and playwright/librettist led to creative collaborations in neo-vaudeville, alt-theater, various alt-rock configurations, (neo) swing bands, trip-hop DJs, spoken word performances, jazz combos, jam bands, various blues configurations, original Off-Broadway plays and musicals, experimental music/art noise and performance art. Whether she’s singing, writing songs or creating theater, Queen Esther is a storyteller in the grand Southern tradition that’s found her way back to Africa through her ‘low-country’ roots.
