What is: “New Blues”?

Postby Buffalo_Bill » Sat Apr 28, 2012 12:37 am

So, wikipedia (or at least one writer) says this is a thing.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Blues
”New blues is a name given to blues music by artists such as The White Stripes, John Mayer Trio, Seasick Steve, NuBlues, Stephen Dale Petit and The Black Keys, who are bringing the blues to wider popularity in the New Millennium.”

I dunno, but is it real, or just another promo?

Was it real for a NY minute there, but now dead?

I don't think it's any different from the way people adapted traditional style material or wrote their own, but if the tag gets fresh people listening with open minds, that's ok with me.
