So I picked up the mandolin, I started to play. He was sittin' there on the edge of the bed. He said 'You know, that sounds really good'. I said, 'Well Yank, all I'm doin' is just imitating you note for note'. And he said, 'That's what I'm telling you. It sounds really good!' - Yank Rachell, remembered by Steve James, Port Townsend 97

Modern Country Blues Musicians?
« on: September 13, 2013, 12:41:27 PM »
Can anyone recomend me any people from the last 15 years or so who are playing the old acoustic style country blues anymore?

I love the old stuff, I study it and breath it, I'd listen to Charley Pattons' Prayer Of Death Part 1 on loop for eternity over every modern "blues" record to date. I'm just looking to find and listen to some new stuff if there is any out there worth dropping my small pile of pennies on.

I picked up an album from Precious Bryant a ways back that was really really good. I like the early Reverend Peytons Big Damn Band off the album Big Damn Nation and The WHole Fam Damnily, their slower songs anyway.

Someone please help me out here and give me some names to look into, googling it comes up with electric guitar bands etc etc :(

Hi,
Your previous query about this was merged with a pre-existing thread, "Who's Who in the Contemporary Acoustic & Country Blues".  Look there.
All best,

Sorry Sir,

I'm new to this Forum style.

I just realized how to check for replies to my posts.

Much appreciated!
