Very little information seems to be available concerning blues woman Mattie Delaney. All that is known is that she recorded a few sides in 1930, including "Down the Big Road Blues". She was said to have been about 25 years old in 1930, and possibly had only been playing guitar for about 3 years when she made the recordings (source unknown & therefore unverified). The recording provides evidence of a very adept blues guitar player but after these few sides were recorded she disappeared and faded into obscurity.


Current Research - Any additional information would be appreciated.
