Bower Community Concert Series

Dr. Levine and The Dreaded Blues Lady is comprised of Lorie Strother on vocals and Stephen Levine on guitar. 
This energetic duo performs a diverse selection of acoustic music styles. Though blues is their focus, they also sometimes surprise audiences with Jazz, R&B, Soul, and Classic Rock tunes. 
Lorie Strother can't remember a time when she wasn't singing because it came so naturally. Strother has been performing and recording her interpretation of acoustic blues since the early 1990s. Corey Harris has called Strother "a real blues woman [who's] got soul," Living Blues Magazine described her singing as "assertive, expressive and sensitive," Carl Larsen of the Daily News Leader states that Lorie "sings the real true blues with a big booming, bluesy voice." 
Stephen Levine is a historian at the University of Virginia who studies and teaches about the evolution and cultural significance of blues music. Levine started playing the guitar when he was eleven years old focusing primarily on folk and classic rock. After his first listen to Robert Johnson's Crossroad Blues in the mid-1990s he became obsessed with classic pre-war blues. Patrick Bagley of the Franklin Journal describes Stephen's guitar playing as "powerful" with "biting slide guitar work."
"Lorie Strother...does justice with singing that's assertive, expressive, and sensitive..."
-Living Blues Magazine JDK 
"Poise and a strong presence captivate audiences; great crowd interaction."
-Hank Wells Sam Hill Entertainment 
"Lorie delivers the goods with her body and her soul, the way great songs should be delivered." 
-Sue Micklem Staunton Public Library
