Willy Gantrim Sings The Blues

Willy Gantrim Sings Country, Blues, And Ballads. Cover Art

I'm generally opposed to anyone but old, black dudes playing blues. That's especially true about country/Delta blues. Yet, somehow, this Willy Gantrim kid is impressing the hell out of me. The guitar playing is solid, especially his slide technique. His voice might not be quite as gravely and worn as I prefer but it fits very well, nonetheless. What I'm saying is, you should check this dude out because he's doing a very difficult thing to do - playing Delta blues and making it sound authentic. Some of these songs are classics and it takes balls to attempt them in their original form.
