Rosa Henderson though having left a distinguished recording legacy is another one of those Classic Blues singers whose musical accomplishments have remained relatively obscure, known but to those true early blues aficionados.
She was born Rosa Dechamps on November 24, 1896 in Henderson, KY. She left home early to travel with her uncles carnival show throughout the South. In 1918, she teamed with comedian Douglas Slim Henderson who she married the same year. They joined up with John Mason and formed the Mason-Henderson performing troupe touring across the U.S until Mr. Henderson died in 1928.
