Biography

She’s Memphis Minnie.
I found an arcticle from Greenville Ms dated - September 6, 1940.
In this article, Minnie states that she is the same MINNIE WALLACE that lived in Greenville some 12 years earlier. At 500 Ohea Street that she rented from a mistah ehrlich. That would make a date of roughly 1928.

I checked the 1930 census and found her at that location, as she said.
It shows her as being born in 1911.

Memphis Jug Band
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Memphis Jug Band was an American musical group active from the mid-1920s through the late 1950s.[1] The band featured harmonica, kazoo, fiddle and mandolin or banjolin, backed by guitar, piano, washboard, washtub bass and jug. They played slow blues, pop songs, humorous songs and upbeat dance numbers with jazz and string band flavors. The band made the first commercial music recordings in Memphis, and recorded more sides than any other pre-war jug band.[2]
