Buffy Sainte-Marie

Cree Indian maiden, playing your mouthbow, singing bold in a tremble, bluesy woman, in the tradition of the Mississippi Delta singers, like Bukka White -- Buffy Sainte-Marie, folk queen, such a shame there's none like you today.

It blows my mind that she can sing with such power while playing the mouthbow.

"People shouldn't put other people into corners, and I hope I haven't. I intend to sing forever, when I'm old and have no figure and no long hair and an ancient face, then I will still be singing." - Buffy Sainte Marie
