Bluesmen and women

  • Angela Strehle
    Angela is one of the Austin's blues scene premier performer. Great wailing voice and a joy to look at.
  • Eric Clapton
    Eric's guitar skills led to "Clapton is God" assertions by fans. He was influenced by Robert Johnson and other American blues artists that Americans' had forgotten.
  • Howlin' Wolf
    With John Lee Hooker they are my favorite male blues singers of all time. I got to see Howlin' Wolf on DVD only.
  • Janis Joplin
    Janis burned the candle at both ends and thrilled us with her performances. Sadly the candle burned out, but not before she revived American interest in blues music.
  • Lou Ann Barton
    Lou Ann was an early member of Stevie Ray Vaughn's band Double Trouble. A great blues voice and your eyes will be pleased as well.
  • Marcia Ball
    One of the Austin blues scene's premiere performers. Long, tall, Marcia Ball is great to look at, great to hear on the piano, and great to hear her vocals.
  • Muddy Waters
    One of the greatest blues performers of all time.
  • Robert Johnson
    Legend has it that he sold his soul to the Devil in order to create great blues music.
  • Ruth Brown
    This lady had an incredible voice for the blues, and I totally enjoy all the 'double entande' phrases. She will be missed.
  • Stevie Ray Vaughn
    The trail blazing guitar skill he brought to not just blues was just phenomenal. So wrong that when he had his demons under control, he was taken.
