Memphis Minnie, born Lizzie "Kid" Douglas in 1897, is considered by many to be the best female blues singer of all time. She received her first guitar in 1905 as a Christmas present and was among the first twenty performers inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame at the inaugural W.C. Handy awards in 1980.
