Ida Cox (February 25, 1894 – November 10, 1967) was one of the great Classic Blues singers of the 1920s, with a career that extended to her last recording in 1961. Though not born here, she is associated with Knoxville, where she lived the last twenty-two years of her life, and she is buried here, in New Gray Cemetery. Unlike many of her contemporaries, she wrote many of her own songs, often in collaboration with her husband. One of the most notable of these songs was “Wild Women Don’t Have the Blues,” and that seems like the perfect name for a show in tribute to her on this, the 50th anniversary of her passing. For the occasion, we present four of Knoxville’s wildest female vocalists, Jenna Jefferson, Kelle Jolly, Jeanine Fuller, and Chelsea Samples. Backing them up will be Matt Coker & The Wild Man Band, a wonderfully talented band led by Matt Coker on piano and Hammond B3 organ, featuring Taylor Coker on upright and electric bass, Hunter Deacon on drums, Chuck Mullican on tenor and baritone saxophones, and Barry “Po” Hannah on guitar.
