The Jubilee and the Kentuckiana Blues Society
were successful in collecting enough funds to
place a headstone for Sara Martin (1884-1955)!

Louisville native Sara Martin was one of the most popular classic blues singers of her time and her recordings with Louisville jug bands are thought to be the first jug band recordings ever made.
