Sonny boy williamson - bluebird blues


….Considering Sonny Boys continued influence on any self-respecting Harp person, I really think he should be in (at least) the top twenty.

Williamson was born in Madison County, Tennessee , near Jackson , in 1914. [1] His original recordings are in the country blues style, but he soon demonstrated skill at making the harmonica a lead instrument for the blues and popularized it for the first time in a more urban blues setting. He has been called "the father of modern blues harp". While in his teens he joined Yank Rachell and Sleepy John Estes , playing with them in Tennessee and Arkansas . In 1934 he settled in Chicago .
