SHOW 107: SEP 15-SEP 21, 2017
Dorothy Ellis is better known by her stage name, Miss Blues. A moniker earned, not in church, but the cotton patches and juke joints of Direct, Texas; a town barely found on the map and where a preacher once declared everyone born there was headed directly to hell. Her mother died before she reached her mid-teens. Today, Miss Blues is considered a legend in Oklahoma and appropriately resides in the Blues Hall of Fame and the Jazz Hall of Fame. Although she hasn’t toured much, she has released a handful of critically acclaimed studio albums and regularly performs at festivals in Oklahoma.
