She is one of many among unrecognized genius. Not many people know Karen Dalton, I found her tonight. She was a Cherokee folk blues singer, guitarist, and banjo player. Dalton played music with Bob Dylan, Fred Neil, Richard Tucker, and most people in the folk scene in Greenwich Village in New York. Bob Dylan once said that Karen Dalton had a voice like Billie Holiday and played the guitar like Jimmy Reed.
