These Memphis cops call me a vagrant, but I'm a musician. I'm a recording artist for the Vict'ry company. Known all over the world. But these southern laws don't recognize a man by his talents. - Willie Blackwell to Alan Lomax

Who-is-Who in the Contemporary Country Blues?

This is the list SO FAR as it appears on my website www.thecountryblues.com.
I am trying to build the definitive worldwide directory of EVERYBODY.
Your help is needed and appreciated.
If you are a musician who is not on it, or if you know one that should be on it, please pitch in. It's a lot of fun.
--------------------------------------------------------
Some are famous, others obscure (and some infamous)
Some are virtuosos, others just so-so.
Some fill concert halls, others play street corners.
Some tour internationally, others gig at coffeehouses.
Some have made riches, others play for spare change.
Some play it always, others play it sometimes.
But, all of them love the acoustic blues.
Hopefully this will develop into a comprehensive list of everyone active in the genre.
Pull this list out when they tell you the acoustic blues are dead!

I must nominate John Morris of Australia, excellent country blues guitarist from long time duo The Blues Preachers where he goes by the name of Brother John. Probably the best of the genre in Australia. He is from Sydney.
I met a woman she was a pigmeat some
Big fat mouth, I followed her home
She pulled a gun and broke my jaw
Didnt leave me hard on, I didnt get sore

Not sure how to embed videos from Youtube but here is John Morris and buddy doing You're Gonna Need Somebody On Your Bond.


Copy and paste should work if I did it wrong.

...Shame so many names on this list are actually passed on now.

Mud Morganfield did "What's wrong with the mill" at the gig last evening so he deserves his spot on there I thinks. Also no Billy Boy Arnold?
...so blue I shade a part of this town.

"Acoustic & Country"... unless they've changed the meaning of the & symbol

Arnold plays acoustic on occasion as does Buddy Guy... and I believe Mud has an acoustic voice

Off-topic, and repetitive: but where did you get that photo of Sam Collins in your avatar?

It's from one of the more recent Yazoo compilations, can't remember which one. I cropped it out.
