Classic 20’s: Show 211


The 1920’s blues artists are a fresh sound to the masses as music moves out of the living room and off the porch.  Finding their way onto vinyl, many musicians start forming legacies that influences bands to this day.

Big Bill Broonzy is a great example of the transformation of the blues from the country to the city style.  Born on the banks of the Mississippi, he moved to Chicago in 1920 as a teenager.  Took some blues guitar lessons from the older blues musicians.  His work was instrumental in forming that early Chicago Blues sound.

Joining Big Bill tonight: Bessie Smith, Leadbelly, Son House, Robert Johnson, Charlie Patton, Dirty Blues, and more…
