Singer/songwriters Diane Durrett and Donna Hopkins will bring their bluesy acoustic show to The Crimson Moon on Saturday night.

The 8 p.m. show blends raw, soulful vocals with original songs by the two women, each of whom has an impressive list of awards and singing partners. Durrett, for example, has sung with Sting, The Indigo Girls, Gregg Allman and Chuck Leavell of The Rolling Stones. She’s opened for Tina Turner, Faith Hill and Delbert McClinton, and last month she was selected to record supporting vocals on Hill’s upcoming single.

Hopkins was selected in 2002 as "Atlanta’s Best Blues Artist" by Atlanta magazine. Raised in Alabama, her mother performed with rock bands in mini skirts and go-go boots, and her grandfather also played a role in influencing Hopkins’ music.
