THE TRIBUTE Event
As part of the film’s journey, the producers plan to host a Betty Davis tribute event in her hometown of Pittsburgh, PA, in 2017. We are currently recruiting many of Betty’s friends and former collaborators, including those interviewed for the film, to join us in honoring her music and legacy. Contemporary artists who have been influenced by Betty’s style may also participate.
Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Greg Errico (Sly and the Family Stone, Jerry Garcia Band, and producer of Betty's first album) is serving as music director for this very special event, which is happening with the full support of Mayor Bill Peduto, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, and the Pittsburgh Arts Council.
More information will be available in early 2017!
