Best non-american blues artist

[updated:LAST EDITED ON Mar-22-05 AT 05:52 PM (EST)]Oooh look everybody, the Lips is being difficult! The title says it all, any ideas anyone?

I'd have to say those french swingers: Les Primitive Des Future, featuring the excellent Olivier blavet on harmonica. I'm currently in the process of trying to find some of their music so you can have listen, but for now, Mean can vouch for their excellence!

I would go with the British piano player Jon Cleary who now lives in New Orleans and is a monster player. He has recorded with Bonnie Raitt and others and has toured with Bonnie. He also has his own band, Jon Cleary and the Absolute Monster Gentlemen.

Eddie Juke, anyone?

Maybe if he didn't always look so bored/depressed?
By the way, I think I missed Blind Mississippi Morris's Sheffield gig this year, looks like it was last Sunday :(

Well if money means best, EC has made more than all the US blues artists put together with just one album,(From the cradle).

I can't see where earned income from record sales equates to the best in any way, shape, or form. http://blindman.forumhoster.com/html/em ... /blink.gif

If it's like his blues playing, he probably interprets Morris dancing.

Hello,
Faul Bradley.

Orish celtic blues with a lot of Martin Simpson overlaid with Charle Patton slide and rythymn,hearfelt lyrics too.

I was on in a fest just before Faul, and he had been drinking for the previous 20 hours( bloody kids), and still pulled it all out of the bag and kept my attention through his set.

Another!
but one I have to hear more about is Jackson C. Frank.

Jan Leman told me the life story of this guy and it is fairly incredible, I'll see if there is a bio type text available.

Now that's more my kind of Morris, Lovat! Saw a local guy build one of those with a 454 Chevy race engine where the back seat used to be. Hmmm... Haven't seen or heard from him lately...
