My name is Cora Mae Bryant and my father is Curley James Weaver. He played with Blind Willie McTell, Buddy Moss, Barbecue Bob, Eddie Mapp and all of em. I remember I used to sit on Buddy Moss' and Eddie Mapp's lap and reach in their front pocket and pull out some chewing gum. They used to play around with my father.
We plays the original Georgia blues music. We plays and sings songs that my father, Blind Willie and Barbecue Bob and Buddy Moss made and Joshua plays them all so close. He really took the time to learn how to play em. And I makes up my own songs and Joshua plays them like my father and them, you know in that same style.

I met Joshua M. Jacobson in 1999; he plays my father and thems music note for note so I been playing with him ever since.
I plays around Atlanta, and sometimes we goes to festivals. We've played at the Iowa Davenport Blues Festival, the Camden Downhome Blues Festival and the biggest festival in the world, The Chicago Blues Festival. We plays mostly around Atlanta at Northside Tavern and on the radio stations (The Friday Night Fish Fry on WREK and Good Morning Blues on WRFG).
My father, Curley Weaver, Buddy Moss, Eddie Mapp, Blind Willie McTell, Barbecue Bob, I likes them all. I likes old Charley Patton and Blind Lemon Jefferson too.
