Cast and Crew
Dive into the wild and whimsical world of queer cabaret diva Mistress Ginger as she holds a sacred space to sing folk songs of centuries past, with origins ranging from 19th century Scotland to early 20th century Appalachia. Harnessing magic, myth, and earthly grit, Ginger’s musical explorations evoke the many lifetimes that course through our veins and inform the present, signaling a return to wholeness, embracing both the raven and the butterfly.
Ginger comes to you live-streaming from her dressing room (aka the Gay Bat Cave). She may also stream from other locations in the Twin Cities – tune in to be surprised. The songs feature guitar accompaniment by Noah Klemp á la Joan Baez circa 1961. For the second Saturday performance, Noah plays the guitar accompaniment live alongside Ginger. The show also includes one original tune written by the Mistress.
