I imagine so. Plus she’s a woman, which I think especially back then in the genre women were more regarded as singers. You would think that would make her more recognizable, but I think it’s the men that picked up on her influence that became more famous on a broader scale.
You raise an interesting point. I actually forgot that when I first saw her play I was amazed to see a woman playing such a style as the core of a group for that time…I guess that she was way ahead of her time.
I still have to find her talent now a days. It seems nobody is interested.
