As Pittsburgh’s Lady Of Lady Of The Blues, Miss Freddye keeps the blues alive in her native hometown,
She started singing in church at a young age. The influence of church and her mother’s love of the Blues gave Miss Freddye the beginning to venture in the world of Blues Music in 1996. She joined BMW(Blues Music Works) under the direction of Big AL Leavitt. In 2002, Miss Freddye formed her own band, “Blue Faze”. Several years later, she became Miss Freddye’s Blues Band and Miss Freddye’s Homecookin’ Band.
Her Influences include: Koko Taylor, Etta James, Sarah Vaughn, Billie Holiday, Big Mama Thornton, Big AL Leavitt, and Bessie Smith.
Miss Freddye’s Homecookin band is just that! They are cookin’ up music that’ll keep you coming back for more!
While keeping it bluesy, Miss Freddye vocally explores the genres of gospel, blues, classic rock and even a hint of country and bluegrass with this acoustic band!
Concert is rain or shine. Rain location is the Feast Hall.
