Country blues

Music genre / From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Country blues (also folk blues, rural blues, backwoods blues, or downhome blues) is one of the earliest forms of blues music. The mainly solo vocal with acoustic fingerstyle guitar accompaniment developed in the rural Southern United States in the early 20th century.[1] It stands in contrast primarily to the Urban blues style, especially in the pre-war era.
