…the blues… with slide and finger picking guitar…

More about Dr Levine and the Dreaded Blues Lady here

Lori Strother, the ‘Dreaded Blues Lady’, can’t remember a time when she wasn’t singing. 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.

Dr. Stephen Levine is a historian who studies and teaches classes that focus on the evolution and cultural significance of blues music in the United States. As a guitarist, he is particularly interested in slide and finger picking styles that emerged in the 1920s and 1930s, including Piedmont and Mississippi Delta Blues.

Here are photos from Dr. Levine and the Dreaded Blues Lady In the Cabaret in 2009.
