Help the Jubilee and the Kentuckiana Blues Society
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.

She is currently buried in an unmarked grave in Louisville Cemetery. We have made it our mission to change that and with your help we hope to unveil a long overdue headstone for her on Friday, September 19th - the day before the 10th anniversary Jubilee!
