Country Blues

Country blues (also known as folk blues, rural blues, backwoods blues or downhome blues) refers to all acoustic, mainly guitar-driven forms of the blues.

After blues' birth in the southern United States, it quickly spread throughout the country (and elsewhere), giving birth to a host of regional styles.

Notable country blues musicians include Etta Baker, Robert Lowery, Blind Blake, Son House, Bo Carter and Charley Patton.
