I forgot to  mention that in some interviews with her, she remarked
that when she was coming up, "we didn't have the blues"  "We
sang sentimental Irish songs and parlor ballads" 

Of course, she was out of an urban background and it's possible
she never heard any blues performer until she was older.

But she sure made up for lost time...
