Mississippi Millie S
Main Library
Tuesday, May. 22, 6:00 p.m.

Mississippi Millie is the first artist to perform at out library this summer in conjunction with our library and Southern Trace Songwriters.  These concerts will be on Tuesdays at 6:00 as part of our Summer Reading Program for Grown-ups.

 

Millie was delivered by her midwife grandmother into a family of six children. She remembers not just the hymns she heard the choir sing in the Baptist church where her mother played piano, but also the 'Devil's Music' she heard in the Delta Juke Joints. "They called it the Blues," says Millie, “I would sneak into the local party houses and rundown joints every chance I could, so I could get up on stage and sing with the 'bad boys.' They called me the 'little girl with the big voice.”  When Millie was nine, her mother moved the family from Mississippi to Pennsylvania. While this transition opened up a whole new world for this very inquisitive child, it also strengthened Millie's devotion to the traditions she had left behind.

During the '60s, Millie traveled to New York City with her sister. There she was offered the opportunity to tour Europe with the Catherine Dunham troupe as a 'pivot girl', the middle dancer with a 10 minute spotlight during which she could display her proficiency in interpretive dance. Millie also took this time to broaden her repertoire to include not only the Blues she loved, but Soul and Rock music, as well. To appease her mother, Millie even took opera lessons!

Everywhere she sang, this deep­down Blues singer remained true to her Delta roots, earning for herself the nickname, 'Mississippi Millie.'  In recent years, ‘Mississippi Millie’ has toured across the U.S. and in Europe.

Southern Trace Songwriters is a full service booking, promotion, and management company. To date, Don has been able to garner studio time in legendary studios such as Castle Studios, and Sound Emporium in Nashville TN for his artists, book his artists in various venues around the country, as well as receive radio play and live interviews.    http://www.southerntracesongwriters.com/
