Each week, The Andes Hotel will be home to a rotating line-up of world class performers, hand chosen by the incomparable Julian Fleisher. Join us at Uncle Andes Trophy Room each Saturday for a night of incredible performances. All shows are outside in the courtyard and free. We welcome guests to make a reservation for pre-show dining inside The Andes Hotel restaurant (suggestion 5-7:30pm) or enjoy drinks and a limited menu in the back during the show. Performing this week at The Uncle Andes Trophy Room is Queen Esther. Raised in Atlanta, Georgia and embedded in South Carolina’s culturally rich and enigmatic Lowcountry – a region with African traditions and Black folkways that span centuries and continue to inform her work – QUEEN ESTHER uses her Southern roots as a touchstone to sonically explore cultural mores in America, deconstructing well-worn historical narratives, delving into lost history and creating a reclamation-driven soundscape in the process. Her creative output musically is the culmination of several critical Southern elements, not the least of which are years of recording and touring internationally as frontwoman for several projects with her mentor, harmolodic guitar icon James “Blood” Ulmer, including a stint in his seminal band Odyssey.
