Blind Blake - Blues Singer, guitarist (1890 - 1933)
Early finger pickin’ guitarist Blind Blake remains a mystery man of the blues. We know he was born Arthur Phelps, in Jacksonville, FL circa 1890-something and died sometime in 1933. He disappeared from the blues scene in Chicago, 1932, where he was considered the undisputed ‘King of the String,’ and had recorded over eighty solo sides for Paramount.
