The Blues
 
Born out of slavery and necessity, "The Blues" has transformed the musical landscape into one of the cornerstones of all popular American music enjoyed today. With it's roots deeply sowed on the plantations in the South, the rise of African Americans after the Civil War gave way to a musical genre that has captivated folks from around the world.

In the beginning, it was merely a "holler" to field slaves to let them know that the slave master was coming. It was a way to protect and warn other slaves. From there, it became "store porch" entertainment for blacks in the South.

It's heritage was born of African slaves brought to America. It's roots are deeply Southern at it's core. However, it spans from the Delta (Mississippi), Texas, St. Louis, Memphis, and Chicago.

To educate people about the true origins and beginning of the Blues, we've decided to take you on a musical journey from the beginning and progress from there.

Blues Tidbits

Bukka White & BB King are cousins.

Robert Lockwood was Robert Johnson's stepson at one point.

Many of the artists that we are playing could fit into more than one category of The Blues. In fact, many of the Blues artist actually migrated elsewhere and recorded their albums in various parts of the country.

Many of the Blues artist tend to have the same "nicknames". For example, "Red", "Magic", "Blind", "Slim", etc....

Many northerners were unaware of Blues music before it hit the radio. During WWI & WWII, they were introduced to Blues music from their Southern counterparts. Ironic they would have to travel to Europe in order to find out about music in their own country.

Blind Blake and a few other Blues artists were never to be heard from again after they had "commercial" success in the black communities. The rumors still point to lynchings.

Sonny Boy Williamson ( Chicago Blues) found out about Sonny Williamson II through "King Biscuit Time". "King Biscuit" was the black radio show that played all the current blues hits at that the time. Sonny Boy Williamson II's name is actually Rice Miller.
