Piedmont blues comes from the south-east of the US, and is more light and bouncy, than delta blues... I think it is very underrated, and I just want to share it with people who have not discovered it yet... the most famous piedmont blues artists are Mississippi John Hurt, Blind Blake, and Reverend Gary Davis. here is a clip with John Hurt: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m-KeCO7E1Tc&mode=related&search=
I hope you like it.

I didn't know that that was the label for those guys. I like all of those people that you mentioned.

A bluesman playing with Pete Seeger? I love blues and traditional folk music, but never once listened to Mississippi John Hurt. What a kick ass form of music.
