Who's Who in the Contemporary Acoustic & Country Blues
« on: December 13, 2007, 10:38:58 AM »
Can you help me? I am looking for some of the contemporary acoustic blues recording artists. Sure, most artists have recorded some blues songs. I am looking for names of those who are basically acoustic musicians. Any help will be appreciated.

..my personal favorite for the old time styles performed w/ a high degree of musicianship and accuracy to the style is Ari Eisinger  .. I'm sure others will add to this..

Hi Jack,
In addition to Ari Eisinger, who is indeed a wonderful acoustic Blues player and singer, here are a few more working now who have made CDs of their work, in no particular order, off the top of my head:
   * Paul Geremia
   * Paul Rishell and Annie Raines
   * Alvin Youngblood Hart (sometimes electric)
   * Michael Jerome Browne
   * Steve James
   * Del Ray
   * John Hammond
   * Rory Block
   * Michael Roach
   * John Cephas and Phil Wiggins
   * John Dee Holman
   * Lightnin' Wells
   * Suzy Thompson
   * Orville Johnson, Grant Dermody and John Miller
   * Roy Book Binder
   * Jim Green
   * Rich Del Grosso
   * Terry Robb
   * Robert Lowery
   * Honeyboy Edwards
   * Ernie Hawkins
   * Ken Hamm
Anyone care to add to this list?  Incidentally, since this topic deals with currently working and gigging musicians, I'm moving it to the Performance Corner.
All best,
Johnm

Where do I start?

Ben Andrews (an absolute favourite of mine- as Im sure Ive bored people with before on this forum...)
David Jacobs-Strain
Chris Smither (albums are more produced- live he plays solo acoustic)
Tom Ball and Kenny Sultan
Bob Brozman and Woody Mann (not 100% blues but pretty nice all the same)
Robert Belfour
Homesick Mac
Paul Jones & Dave Kelly (do both electric and acoustic- often split their gigs into one set of each)

And Ill third the Ari Eisenger and John Miller votes  ;D
