Let’s Talk About the Country Blues

In the second episode about the early days of the blues, Vinnie talks about the blues music styles of the 1930’s with famous musicians of the Piedmont Blues like Blind Blake and Blind Willie McTell, and the legends in the Mississippi Delta, the heart of the blues, like Charley Patton, Son House, Lead Belly, and Robert Johnson who were not well known in their time, but left behind a legacy that opened the door for Chicago blues artists like Muddy Waters to help pave the way for what would become rock and roll music.
