Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Eddie Mapp (c. 1910 - November 14, 1931) was an American country blues harmonicist. He is best known for his accompaniment on record of both Barbecue Bob and Curley Weaver. Mapp was born in Social Circle, Walton County, Georgia. He relocated in 1922 to Newton County, where he met the guitar player, Curley Weaver. Although he did not sing, Mapp was noted in Newton County as a harmonica virtuoso with a unique style, who often performed for tips on the street. In 1925 Weaver and Mapp left for Atlanta. The twosome played at country dances, then Weaver together with Barbecue Bob and his brother Charlie Hicks formed a group with Mapp, and continued to play locally.show more
