Lady A

Lady "A" has been a Pacific NW Blues favorite for many years and is known as “The Hardest Workin Woman in Blues, Soul & Funk”. Her love of blues and soul music is generally likened to a pot of Louisiana Gumbo... throw in a mixture of soul, funk, the musicians and a venue, it makes for the best hand clappin’, foot-stoppin’ and dancin’ experience you can throw all together.
