Our American Blues is credited with starting in the 1800’s in African-American life, and has changed greatly from then to now. Blues are discussed in half a dozen different genres across variety in the music. Two CD sets that survey a part of this scene are the “Essential Texas Blues” and the “Essential Delta Blues”. They cover a large set of our the classic artists.
Tune in Friday with Kathleen for a snapshot of our American Blues, some artists, and their whereabouts.
