Lori Strother, the ‘Dreaded Blues Lady’, received her first standing ovation after singing at a school PTA function when she was nine years old. She has been performing her interpretation of acoustic blues since the early 1990’s, in venues including church fellowship halls, coffee houses, college campuses, bars, and chicken shacks. Most recently, she appeared at the Wayne Theatre Project’s River City Radio Hour in Waynesboro. She has been called “a real blues woman [who’s] got soul” and her singing “assertive, expressive and sensitive. . . the true blues…with a big booming, bluesy voice.”
