karen dalton was a blues/folk singer from oklahoma. she had a rough life.. a fan of drugs and alcohol and apparently died of aids on the streets of nyc in the 90's. she had a beautiful billy holidayish voice and played the guitar and banjo. listen to my fav 'something on my mind'.
illustrator jess rotter made these karen dalton tees we currently have in the shop.
here's a cute youtube vid of "blues jumped the rabbit"
