Default UK blues influences?


I followed your link
By sheer coincidence I was listening to BBC 2 radio station last night (Paul Jones) ..

Martin Hawkins joins Paul Jones to discuss his book on blues singer and harmonica player, Slim Harpo. Born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Slim Harpo is remembered today as one of the blues world's most influential musicians. A leading exponent of swamp blues, his songs were a unique fusion of blues, country, cajun and rockabilly. His works have also been covered on numerous recordings by bands including The Rolling Stones, The Grateful Dead, The Who and The Doors. Plus new releases from Tom Walker and Rick Estrin & The Nightcats.

book title:- "Slim Harpo - the King Bee of Baton Rouge"

Pauls' programme goes out every Monday night at 19:00 for 1 hour.
