Fans of Fredericka Stover — aka Miss Freddye — can hear her new CD, "Lady of the Blues," at a special release party on Aug. 25 at Moondog's in Blawnox.

The 8:30 to 11 p.m. party brings Miss Freddye back to her roots, after playing all over Pittsburgh and the surrounding areas at venues from small pubs to large concert halls.

This release features tunes like the healing "Miss Freddye's Gonna Fix Ya," a finger-snapping "Luv Ya Baby" with John "Blues" Boyd, the horn-filled proclamation of "Lady of the Blues," the love fixer-upper "Home Improvement" and the chugging sound of "Freight Train Blues" with Brandon G Bentz — aka "Dr. B" — playing harmonica.

Joining Miss Freddye, along with Bentz, will be Andrea Iglar, saxophonist for the Dave Iglar Band; Fred Delu, keyboardist for the Matt Barranti Band; and her own award-winning Miss Freddye's Blues Band.

Ticket price is $7.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
