Born and raised in Pittsburgh Pa, Barbara has had the blues since the day she was born. She has performed with various top notch artists such as: Taj Mahal & The Phantom Blues Band, Jeff Healey, Marcia Ball, Delbert McClinton, Maceo Parker, Al Jackson, Pinetop Perkins, James Cotton, Tab Benoit, The Nighthawks and Big Mike Griffin to name a few, from Pittsburgh to Detroit to Chicago, Boston, New Orleans, LA and Memphis. Since forming her own band in 1989, Barbara has been progressing right up blues alley. With the release of her Debut CD "OUT OF THE BLUE", Barbara has reached a wider audience of blues lovers world wide. Now residing in Memphis Tennessee and performing nightly (See Schedule) on historical Beale Street for the past seven years, Barbara's understanding and cultivation of the Blues is deeper and richer than ever. Barbara has also accomplished studio recordings for Sony Records Nickelodeon project "Peanutbutter and Jam" (Many thanks to the late great Tom Pompesello) and the theme song for "Lucille's Car Care Clinic" a national cable TV show. Out Of The Blue is Barbara Blue's first recording. Recorded in November 1994 in Pittsburgh, PA at the Control Room on the South Side. In the beginning there was "OUT OF THE BLUE" ...... what a long strange ride it's been!!! To the present day Barbara still teams up with some of the musicians who performed on this CD to do shows in Pittsburgh and along the east coast.
