Marie Cahill

Marie Cahill (1870–1933) was an American singing comedienne who was popular both in vaudeville and on the Broadway stage. She was successful as the star of several Broadway musicals during the early 1900s, most notably Sally in Our Alley, in which she introduced the song "Under the Bamboo Tree." Among her twelve published Victor records is the first recording of a vocal blues selection sung by a woman, "Dallas Blues," recorded in 1916. She also recorded a number of the humorous monologues that she performed in vaudeville.
