Here's a thread for Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee :)

If you've never heard 'em before, they have a sort of country/folk kind of blues to them... Classic stuff :)

Well here's a thread for 'em. Have fun :)

Sonny Terry is one of the best harp blowers ever, and Brownie McGhee is an awesome singer/guitarist.

Geniuses. I have a CD with them two as well as Lightnin' Hopkins. Brilliant stuff.

Yeah they're awesome :)

"What a Beautiful City" would probably be my favorite song by them

Do an awesome version of 'Baby please don't go'.

Yeh I love them too. Got a couple of their albums but Live at the 2nd fret is probably the pick imho.

Anyone got a link to some of their stuff?

Wierd ... I'm not familiar with either, but both Brownie (Clifford Brown) and McGhee (Howard McGhee, went by "maggie") were prominent Bebop trumpet players.
