BLUES AND WORLD REPORT with Matthew Skoller

Episode 1: Deitra Farr

Legendary Blues Diva Deitra Farr talks about her beginnings as a child on the Southside of Chicago growing up listening to the musical smorgasbord that was the Chicago music scene. From going to the church where Thomas A. Dorsey, the Father of Gospel music led his choir to becoming immersed in the Chicago Blues scene. Starting out as an R&B/Soul singer at age 17 to being over-worked and underpaid in Chicago’s grueling Blues clubs, Deitra tells it like it tee-eye-izzz!!!
