Across her decades-long career, Bailey, who will be the long-overdue subject or my Music column in the September 2017 issue of Chronogram, has performed with some of music’s greatest legends and was a mainstay and the late Peg Leg Bates’s famed local country club. She began by singing gospel in her native Georgia before moving to New York to pursue a career in jazz and blues clubs. This month’s date at the Rosendale Theater celebrates her new record and benefits the theater as well.
