Kansas City’s Best Kept Jazz Secret: Millie Edwards will perform at the Mid-Continent Public Library-Kearney Branch Thursday, April 7 at 7 p.m.
Edwards is known around Kansas City as the tiny woman with the big voice. Her "big" voice and wide range, as well as her friendly, upbeat personality have endeared her to Kansas City audiences over the years. She has been a regular on the Kansas City jazz and blues circuit, and frequently performs at some of the best clubs in town as well as radio and television spots. A true vocal stylist with a distinctive and mature sound, Edwards is undoubtedly one of the city’s best-kept secrets.
Along with solo appearances, Edwards is also a member of The Wild Women of Kansas City. She has traveled extensively and has been featured with such artists as Everette DeVan, Greg Meise, and the late Charles Erland.
