The Coon Creek Girls

The Coon Creek Girls

Profile:
Popular all-female "string band" in the Appalachian style of folk music (a precursor of country music) which began in the mid-1930s. Created (and named) by John Lair for the Renfro Valley Barn Dance show, the band originally consisted of sisters Lily May Ledford and Rosie Ledford (from Powell County, Kentucky) along with Esther "Violet" Koehler (from Indiana) and Evelyn "Daisy" Lange (from Ohio). Sister Minnie Lena Susie Ledford was also credited elsewhere.

Note: In 1979, Lair revived the name with the The New Coon Creek Girls, a combo which remained popular for several decades, despite numerous changes in line-up.
