Memphis Minnie

Memphis Minnie (June 3, 1897 - August 6, 1973) was one of the most influential and pioneering female blues musicians and guitarists of all time. She recorded for forty years, virtually unheard of for any women in show business at the time, and possibly unique among female blues artists. She married three times to musicians Joe McCoy[?], Casey Bill Weldon[?] and Ernest Lawlers[?].
