Shirley Griffith

Shirley Griffith learned the blues in Mississippi before joining many other Black people in the migration north, settling in Indianapolis in 1928.

He worked in a factory but played blues at night and experienced a career surge with recording and touring in the 1960s. Many of Shirley’s recordings can be found on You Tube by doing a search using his name. (1908-1974, Section 99 Lot 4717)
