"If you're brown, stick around"

One of my personal favorites and finest early blues musicians. Big Bill Broonzy was a shifting storyteller and brutally honest. He wasn't traditional in the, well, traditional blues sense. Folk and blues became his signature combination. NPR tells The Big Bill Broonzy story.


  1. I love how your blog always lets me know about something new and interesting to me...the old/good stuff, sadly, is new to me. Thanks for having good taste!

  2. that's not sad! i find new things all the time that are by no means new in general, and that ain't sad, it's awesome! glad you enjoy it.
