Mississippi Blues


An old classic by Willie Brown, circa 1941, blending in some other ideas.


This is a tricky piece to play and sing. A tour-de-force of acoustic blues playing which I’m a long way from truly mastering! As Eric Clapton said about copying Robert Johnson – “It’s a life’s work”.  But it just goes to show how good these old masters were and the original versions should be heard.  He recorded with Son House and Charlie Patton, and was an influence on both Robert Johnson and Muddy Waters.  One of the big names for acoustic blues aficionados.
