Putumayo's Mississippi Blues CD


The blues was born on the fertile soil that lines the banks of the mighty Mississippi River. Mississippi Blues includes artists who were born and raised near the river, many of whom left when they were adults to establish careers and new styles in Chicago, St. Louis, New York and other cities. Whether they stayed in the region or moved away, all of the artists onMississippi Blues maintained a close connection to their rural blues traditions.
