Artist Of The Week: Son House

The artist of the week is Son House. Son was one of the great delta bluesmen of the 1920s-30s. House knew and played with Charlie Patton, Honeyboy Edwards, Robert Johnson, Willie Brown, and many other great Mississippi Bluesmen. Son had his own unique style that influenced many blues performers even the great Robert Johnson was heavily influenced by Son. Son also may have contibuted to the legend that Robert had sold his soul to the devil when he was asked about the topic in the late 60s. To watch the videos look for the youtube video box titled artist of the week on the right side of the blog.
