    As distinctive a style in the Delta tradition as any bluesman who ever played. He was found and sponsored on his various domestic and European tours by Chris Strachwitz of Arhoolie Records. I once had the honor of putting him up overnight in Portland, OR, when he came to town for a joint concert with fellow Arhoolie recording artist Mance Lipscomb. McDowell played virtually his entire repertoire in open tunings -- most often open G (or "Spanish"). but also open D tuning.
