What can you expect from All About Blues Music?
Son House, Ma Rainey, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Bessie Smith, Lonnie Johnson and Charley Patton were among the top blues artists who appeared in bars and ‘juke joints’ in black neighbourhoods to play Blues music during the first few decades of the 20th century. Itinerant musicians, from Texas to the Carolinas, would often play and sing in the streets to make a few cents. There were hundreds of these ‘footloose bards’ developing their vocal and musical styles, borrowing lyrics and tunes from each other in the lively creative chemistry of the oral tradition. For instance, the story of Stagger Lee was based on an murder that happened in the 1880′s, and the tale was told for many years in popular blues ballad form. Mississippi John Hurt recorded his version in 1928, and the song is still being played today by modern Blues artists.
