Payin' Dues: Trixie Whitley
Following in her father Chris Whiley's footsteps, the Belgian-born instrumentalist plays the blues.
THE DAUGHTER OF bluesman Chris Whitley and the great granddaughter of sculptor and artist Georges Minne, Trixie Whitley made her onstage debut with her father aged three. At 10, she was playing the drums, at 11 DJing festivals around Europe and at 20, she fronted producer Daniel Lanois’ Black Dub band. In 2013, she issued her first solo album, Fourth Corner. She has just completed Porta Bohemica, its terrific follow up.
