that was interesting, thanks! Genres of music are as much mongrels as we all are these days.

 

Wily, just out of interest in your family history what country/countries do your roots go back to? My as far as can be traced go back to Wales and France.

I had read that one before and it is an interesting read.

 

But I can't help feeling that these academic explanations got House, Charlie, Tampa, Muddy,and others up there laughing their butts off. As Ma Rainey once said, white folks may hear the blues come out but they don't know how it got there.
