A rousing vocalist and dynamic entertainer, "Big Time" Sarah Streeter was among the more enterprising contemporary blues performers. She moved to Chicago from Coldwater, Mississippi, as a child, and sang in South Side gospel choirs before debuting as a blues vocalist on-stage at Morgan's Lounge at 14. She later worked with Buddy Guy, Junior Wells, and Sunnyland Slim. A single on Slim's Airway label helped launch her solo career. Big Time Sarah was a featured performer at many North Side clubs beginning in the late '70s, and appeared at several blues festivals. She formed the Big Time Express in 1989, and made her Delmark label debut, Lay It on 'Em Girls, in 1993. Blues in the Year One-D-One arrived in 1996, followed by A Million of You in 2001. Big Time Sarah died of heart complications at a nursing home in the Chicago area in 2015; she was 62 years old. ~ Ron Wynn
