I can't stand to sing the same song the same way two nights in succession, let alone two years or ten years. If you can, then it ain't music, it's close-order drill or exercise or yodeling or something, not music - Billie Holiday, 1915-1959

Modern Country Blues Artists?
« on: March 06, 2021, 08:46:32 PM »
Hey there guys,

Are there any modern country blues guitarists worth listening to?  I love the classic Blind Blake, Charlie Patton, Blind Lemon Jefferson, etc...but I would really like to hear some great modern blues hits! It sucks, It seems to me that music had peaked during the golden age of country blues, lmao.

Lots.  Several of whom frequent this forum!

The link above is a handy one.  You could even try Mixcloud, where I have been doing a "show" focussed entirely on modern acoustic players with firm roots in the old stuff. (search for Mendip Slim)

Everyone has their own tastes, but among the players who immediately rush to mind, are the likes of Ari Eisenger, Paul Geremia, Ben Andrews.

And of course you have John Miller, of this parish...

Start with Quon Willis and you will find links to other young African-American country blues players.

Well, it's not really surprising, the original poster hasn't bothered to check back in since the day after asking a totally lame and insulting question. Such is the internet.

Maybe they've been busy checking out all the links posted in good faith on the day after they first asked. Or, more likely, it was just a facebook-driven drive-by troll.

My advice to long time Weenie Campbell members is this. Don't feed new subscribers that ask stupid questions. If you must reply, qualify them first by asking your own questions. If they fail to engage in a meaningful way you know it really ain't worth your- or anyone else's time. Let's keep the troll count down to the minimum.

PapaOneil, the ball is in your court. I, and everyone else here, will not be holding our collective breaths.

And have a nice day, unless you have other plans.

I would like to second the mention for Max and Veronica. Max De Bernardi is one of the finest guitarists I know. He is currently doing a series of videos on YouTube called Max Picks. Here's the latest where he plays Old Country Rock and Ragtime Millionaire:
