Featured Musician: Jessie Mae Hemphill

I has seen a copy of Jesse Mae Hemphill’s self titled record sitting in my local record shop for 3 months before I decided to buy it.

I’m definitely glad I did— she’s a gem of the Mississippi Hill style of blues.

Jesse’s first recording wasn’t released until age 58, but what she put out was top-notch blues.
