Lorie Strother, ‘The Dreaded BluesLady’ has performed her interpretation of Blues music since the 1990s. Lorie can’t remember a time when she wasn’t singing because it was something that came so naturally. However, she vividly remembers the moment when she decided that she would be a performer. That moment occurred when she received her first standing ovation at a PTA school function at 9 years old.
Since 2008, Lorie has performed with the Virginia based duo Dr. Levine and The Dreaded BluesLady. Within this duo she is accompanied by historian Dr. Stephen Levine on guitar. In addition to this she also performs solo and with a band.
