Vaudeville-Singer. Her six piece band, "Katie Crippen and Her Kiddies", was part of the "Hippity Hop" revue touring across the United States on the Columbia vaudeville circuit and performing for highbrow New York area audiences. The act was a special feature that was called the "Olio", being a mix of song and dance. A young Count Basie got his start as a pianist in her group. (bio by: Elizabeth Reed)
