Lorie Strother and Stephen Levine comprise Dr. Levine and The Dreaded BluesLady.

They perform at libraries, farmers markets, private parties, coffee shops, restaurants, universities, and many other venues. While their performances often focus on the music itself, they also have created educational programs that draw on Dr. Levine’s expertise as a historian to provide cultural and historical context for the music.
