Googling "Ellen McIlwaine" turns up her web site where CD's can be ordered.
On a hot summer afternoon in 1974 I saw her perform at a two day blues festival on Toronto Island. The guy sitting in front of me responded to her introduction with the remark "Fuck what's this ... chick on guitar?" .... of course was completely blown away before the set was finished. Gender bias turned inside out in a few short minutes.
