Dora Carr is best known for her work in the early and mid 1920's with pianist and arranger Cow Cow Davenport. Carr is best remembered for the song "Cow Cow Blues" and playing boogie-woogie.
According to the Harlem Renaissance, written by Henry Louis Bates, Davenport and Carr met in 1922 and toured the Theater Owners Bookers Association as "Davenport and Company" . 8 songs were released by Vocalion Records in the vaudevillian duet style. The band broke up when Dora left Davenport for another man, and later married him.
