Big Time Sarah

A veteran of the Chicago blues scene for over three decades, Big Time Sarah knows how to throw her weight around when wielding a microphone, to the delight of those who enjoy her charged, raunchy shows. She is the consummate blues singer, and has earned the right to her nickname by delivering modern electric blues at its sweaty, steamy best.

Big Time Sarah was born Sara Streeter on January 31, 1953 in Coldwater, Mississippi and moved to Chicago with her family when she was seven. Sarah received her first vocal training and performing experience by singing with church choirs on the city's South Side. In the best blues tradition, Sarah made her performing debut at the age of 14 by sitting in at a blues jam at Morgan's Lounge located at 312 E. 61st St. During the early 1970's, Sarah began paying her blues dues by working inner city clubs such as Morgan's, Louise's Lounge, Cinderella and the Show and Tell Lounge.
