FEATURED ARTIST: Mississippi John Hurt
This half-hour is dedicated to an amazing guitarist who died in November 2, 1966 - Mississippi John Hurt. His fingerpicking style really predates the blues but he is lumped in with this category because of where he was born, his age and his uniqueness. I consider him more of a folk singer. He was one of ten children in a family that loved music. He taught himself to play guitar. He first recorded music in the late 20's without notice so he went back to farming for a living until being rediscovered in the mid-1950's. His delta blues are imitated throughout the rock world. He released seven albums in the 60's.
