Who's your favourite Blues artist?

Thread Starter 

Any time period. Mine is Hownlin' Wolf but sure wish I could get his music with contemporary sound quality. I'm caucasion but don't care much for "white-boy" blues.

I'll second Joe Bonamassa, without a doubt! Recently went and saw him at the NIA (UK) and Sandi Thom was supporting him and her new album (Merchants and Thieves) is absolutely brilliant. Highly recommend listening to it!

I'm all about Howlin' Wolf. I don't know where a voice like that comes from.

 

Muddy Waters and Elmore James are up there, too.
