Little is known about Elvie Thomas, a country blues singer and guitarist. Said to be from Palmer's Crossing, MS, she recorded two songs ("Motherless Child Blues" and "Over to My House") in Grafton, WI, for Paramount Records in March of 1930, with Geeshie Wiley assisting on second guitar. Thomas also backed up Wiley on two tracks at the same session, adding a second guitar on "Last Kind Word Blues" and "Skinny Leg Blues." A year later she sang and backed up Wiley on two more sides for Paramount, "Pick Poor Robin Clean" and "Eagles on a Half." ~ Steve Leggett
