Strange Country Blues

Do you know where I can find other great, strange blues and vaudeville artists like Abner Jay
on the blue) and Peg Leg Sam Jackson
? I like rich, old, authentic country blues like Blind Willie McTell and Mississippi John Hurt and John Lee Hooker (and you know what I mean), but am looking for stuff that is more . . . unique. Looking for either really interesting music (Abner Jay) or incredible stories (Peg Leg Sam) from that era/place. Both artists considered themselves part of the last great Southern black minstrel shows. Where can I find more stuff like that?
