Blues

Blues is a vocal and instrumental form of music based on the use of “blue notes.” It emerged in Black communities of the United States from spirituals, work songs, field hollers, shouts and chants, and rhymed simple narrative ballads. The use of blue notes and the prominence of call-and-response patterns in the music and lyrics are indicative of African influence. Read more…|Edit this Artist photo: John Lee Hooker

    Can anyone help me please??? I cant find an artist, i forgot his name. I saw video with him, 4 years ago maybe, its rather live video , not a clip. He walks slowly on the street, singing and playing blues with his guitar and harmonica. He is probably 23 age old, and he has such an amazing voice. He was wearing plaid shirt and black glasses. Please someone, help me. pleeeeasee :[ Thanks in advance!!
