Morse, Chicago. Cookie Taylor (Koko Tayylor’s daughter) will co-host this historic concert when for the first time ever, 10 of the city’s most noted Blues Mamas will join in solidarity for one night on one stage with one voice for America and women’s rights and issues. Calling the election night play by plays is NFL Alum Mike Jennings.
