feature: barbara lynn – the legendary blues singer and left-handed guitarist

December 29, 2015

Listen to the music of Blues legend Barbara Lynn – the pioneering singer, songwriter, and guitarist; recognised mostly for her 1962 hit single, ‘You’ll Lose a Good Thing’ (a song that charted at #1 when it was released). The singer (born January 16, 1942, in Beaumont,Texas) was a unique figure in the music industry of the 60s and 70s; a Blues woman who not only writes her own music, but who plays the guitar seamlessly with her left hand.
