Who Is The Father Of Blues?

I'll pick Phil Collins and Diana Ross as the best blues singers I have ever come across!

That's an unforgiveable error! Pardon me for being so blunt, none of those artistes remotely sing the blues...

The father of blues is a contentious one, there are too many artistes worthy of consideration - Blind Lime Jefferson, Elmore James, Howlin Wolf, Big boy crudup, Koko Taylor, Sonny Boy Williamson, Ma Rainey + the artistes nferyn mentions - however some purists do not highly consider BB King as a true blues artiste albeit his popularity. W.C Handy is widely considered as the father of blues.

I think it is a great idea for you to be able to discern the sound of the blues, before you begin to ask the question of who is the father/mother of blues...

Hope this helps?

If you want to discover the blues, go and look for people like Buddy Guy, John Lee Hooker, BB King
