Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mattie Delaney (1905 - unknown) was an American delta blues singer and guitarist. She was active in the 1930s with only two known recordings: "Down the Big Road Blues," and "Tallahatchie River Blues." Born Mattie Doyle in Tchula, Mississippi, she recorded two songs for the Vocalion Records label in February 1930. Her song "Down The Big Road Blues" was a variant of Tommy Johnson's "Big Road Blues." She was unusual for a female performer of the time, in that she played guitar accompaniment and sang topical songs. Nothing is known of her life after the recordings.show more
