Up here in Dundee we have a blues festival in july with lots of bands in different pub venues over the last few years that is most popular with both sexes, that has expanded to friday, saturday and sunday.

Maybe it is just not so the first thing that springs to mind as it doesn't come under the label of 'popular music' but I certainly love the blues. The Blues Brothers is a classic film and I've seen tribute bands live do this too. I adore the saxaphone and think it is the sexiest instrument in the world. I also love rnb (not rap) and think n.e.r.d are brilliant.

So... I guess some of us do love it.

well for starters. blues and r'n'b (rhythm n blues) are not the same thing.

for any blues or rhythm n blues fans or people who dont really know it get ya bootys over to memphis, beale street in particular. youll soon appreciate the true soul of all music . . . and a bloody great portion of ribs too

sonny boy williamson, muddy waters, howlin wolf, r l burnside, b b king, john lee hooker, billie holiday, dobie gray and even fleetwood mac are all great classic blues artists but blues in this day n age still lives on with the likes of seasick steve and joe bonamassa (harder blues but amazing guitarist)


I like RnB, dancy stuff and rap

scint, do you mean rhythm n blues or that over hyped noise people call RnB these days?

Myself and my pregnant bump, in a t-shirt labelled BIG, went to the London Blues festival in 1991, had a blast

I spent many a dissolute sunday in Greenwich or New Cross and it's environs listening to great blues/r & b cos I knew a great band that played that way. If they didn't have a gig, a couple of them would busk around Greenwich market, so I would rock up aand enjoy. Happy Days



Bought the t-shirt too

A friend has just recommended I listen to some Susan Tedeschi (Back to the River) not heard the whole album yet, but what I've heard so far is excellent.

Her husband Derek Trucks ain't bad either lol

Big difference between cotton patch blues and what is / was known as Rhythm 'n' Blues (before some sould diva hijacked the term R'n'B ... )

Love Rockin Dopsie and the Twisters
Albert King
Little Charlie and the Nightcats,
as well as a lot of the more traditional cotton patch stuff , and yeah, even the Blues Brothers Band ...


Last Saturday on BBC 4 was the first part of Blue Brittania, the story of the blues in the UK ... assuming part two (of 4) next week ... dont miss it !

agreed there are a_corn, but they are women who generally know a lot about music and have good tastes in general. but i bet if you went and done some research on the street so to speak only about 1 in 20 will know about the blues and nothing on its history or influences. BUT mention rnb and they think its the crap that played ad2005

have seen blues britainia before oggers and lovely to see the old stars being interviewed and hardly recognised jack bruce never mind his voice, shows singing can be done with out an accent lol

whilst searching the net when after a good night out id thought id teach a few about the blues, and dont mean those who hang around small heath shouting lulu. a treat is what it is as shows the best guitarist in the world imho bb king and his friends who arent that bad either just relax, enjoy and more importantly for the women, realise the blues is a way to a mans heart.

I happened to go on a wee blues adventure long time ago and I stumbled into BB King ,Buddy Guy, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Clapton, jj Cale. Its a bit of a sweeper of a statement to say us girls know nothing about Blues.


ahhh were you there?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F4OXrmxDp44&feature=related

i have noticed in the last few months other sides of music are making a bit of a comeback, noticeable is folk, no longer in its image of woolly jumpers and warm beer. but still say quite a few bints dont know much about blues, but when introduced .... they seem to like at certain times

then again is it a generation thing? i mean those who are younger are quite pressurised into liking into what their friends like or forced down the necks from the radio stations?

the blues

you mean country music with a harmonica?

check out hank williams who described himself as a blues singer but was landed with the crystal and sean delier crowd.

there is some fantastic country music out there

go on you tube and look up jim white and his album the wrong eyed jesus

also steve earle and the del mccoury band

hillbilly music supreme

so yep the blues? aye fair enough

but there is a lot of music out there made by poor white folk thats just as good if not better
