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

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

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