Cat Iron

In 1958, folklorist Frederic Ramsey, Jr. documented someone called Cat-Iron in Buckner’s Alley in Natchez, Mississippi. Ramsey whote an in depth poetic explanation of his finding of Cat-Iron for The Sunday Review which, alas, provided no background around the designer. A biographic cipher, Cat-Iron’s single testament is usually “Cat-Iron Sings Blues and Hymns,” explained in the 1958 Folkways catalogue as “old-time Negro tunes and guitar design.”
