Jammin' Divas

On Your Radar: Emma's Revolution/Brad Cole/Jammin' Divas

by John Platt

The May 14 On Your Radar at Rockwood Music Hall brought together Emma's Revolution, Brad Cole, and the Jammin' Divas.

Emma's Revolution is the veteran feminist duo from Washington, DC, consisting of Pat Humphries and Sandy O. Many of their songs draw on their commitment to social justice, though not in a heavy-handed way. Their set included a brand-new song, "Killing Game," which hasn't been released and which we include her.

When Irish-born Aoife Clancy (daughter of Bobby Clancy of The Clancy Brothers) met the young Australian singer-songwriter Kath Buckell in Israel, they hit it off, and Aoife told Kath to look her up if she ever moved to the U.S. A couple years later, Kath did just that, and one night they teamed up with Rhode Island singer-songwriter Becky Chace for a concert that had instant chemistry. Soon the Israeli flutist Hadar Noiberg joined them, and The Jammin' Divas became a group, which draws on their diverse backgrounds and exquisite harmonies.
