Blues to Bop | 28-31.08.2014

 

 

Millie was born into the Blues, in Mississippi, of the where some folks called it “Devil’s Music”. But to Millie, the Blues sounded as natural as the willows above and the rich earth below.

But, when she was just nine years old, Millie’s mother moved her and her family away from Mississippi to Pennsylvania. The Mississippi musical spirit known as the Blues stayed in her, though. In the years that followed, whether performing as part of the blossoming Philly soul scene, singing standards, studying opera vocal technique, or taking on Rock ’n’Roll, Millie always drew on the Delta Blues’ feeling for inspiration and motivation. Eventually that spirit became so strong in Millie that she made a full-blown return to performing Delta Blues exclusively.
