Before there was rock’n roll, before there were rock guitar gods, before Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash, there was Sister Rosetta Tharpe. On Saturday, June 4, Greensboro’s beloved, O. Henry Award Winning storyteller and musician Mr. Logie Meachum will lead a handpicked band of Greensboro’s top musicians in telling the story of Sister Rosetta Tharpe—from her 1940's and ’50's crossover from gospel to secular music to the lasting impact she has had on future generations of R&B, rock 'n' roll, jazz, blues and country musicians.
