    Question Music: favorite blues groups, artists

    Assuming you enjoy listening to blues music, what groups or artists are your favorite?

    I'll start ...

    Tinsley Ellis. Been listening to him since his first album was cut, 25yrs ago. Definitely a great show. TE on Youtube.

    Stevie Ray Vaughan. Was introduced to blues for the first time at a small, local venue. This was early 1980's, and his sets focused on traditional blues and a few of his classics. A great way to have your eyes opened, at a SRV concert that blows the roof off the joint.

    Ruthie Foster. Solo or with her group, she's a powerhouse. Very gritty and soulful. Living In a Small Town on YouTube.

    I am a drummer, vocalist and sometimes bassist in a band that plays the blues.

    Robert Johnson songs done by various artists is at the top of my list.

    Jeff Beck "Blow by Blow" is a classic and my favourite.

    B. B. King, Muddy Waters, Howling Wolf, Sonny Boy Williamson, Johnny Taylor.....etc. etc.

    Dangit, I thought the thread title said bluegrass.
    If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.
