Nat Reese: West Virginia Blues

Taking a break from the Holidays to share about a West Virginia Blues player. When you think of West Virginia you might think of bluegrass, folk, country, or scary banjo music. Yes, I live in a border area with some fine blues players. However, I spent some time in the southern part of the state and was lucky enough to discover a true West Virginia player in Nat Reese. He is the real deal, a mining camp blues players.He is a member of the West Virginia Music Hall of Fame.

Here he is with Phil Wiggens, a fine Piedmont Blues player. Yes you can blend the Mountains with the Piedmont.

Here is another song from him..

Just keeping the Blues Alive a bit...
