Yes, the Hudson Valley has a wealth of musical greats. But Miss Rene Bailey is one of the most indispensable. The vocalist, who leads the six-piece traditional Dixieland/swing ensemble the Saints of Swing, has lately been finishing up making her first solo gospel album, which she’ll celebrate with a performance at the Rosendale Theater on August 20.

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.

Check out this promotional video for the new release:



Rene Bailey will perform at the Rosendale Theater in Rosendale, New York, on August 20 at 3pm. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. For more information, call (845) 658-8989 or visit www.Rosendaletheatre.org.
