In Performance at the Governor's Mansion
A showcase of Kentucky’s best and brightest performers, featuring music, dance, dramatic readings, poetry, and more.
Jonell Mosser

Jonell Mosser has made a name for herself as a backup singer to artists all over the world—from Etta James, Bonnie Raitt, and Wynonna to Joe Ely, Waylon Jennings, and Keb’ Mo’. Her appearance as a headliner on In Performance showcases her versatility as a singer, which can also be heard on her recent CDs, So Like Joy and Enough Rope.

A Kentucky native who moved to Nashville in the 1980s, Jonell has developed a well-earned reputation as a backing vocalist. That experience has worked to her advantage as a solo artist, too—she has developed her voice to adapt to many different kinds of material. She is equally adept as a country singer, blues shouter, rock diva, and traditional folk and gospel singer. She also writes and performs her own music.

Ballads and Blues
Two of Kentucky’s most notable singers, Tanita Gaines and Jonell Mosser, perform old standards, blues, jazz, country, and even a bit of rock ’n’ roll. (#602)
