The early 'Classic Female Blues', which sort of covers everything from Crazy Blues onwards when record companies suddenly noticed there was a market for Black music for Black audiences. Sort of 1920-1935, tapering off pretty heavily after that.

Skipping Ma Rainey and Bessie Smith because they need their own posts. A lot of these women came straight out of the music hall circuit, I've tried to keep this to jazz blues and straight up blues.
