The Blues arose out of the American Deep South around the turn of the twentieth century. Heavily influenced by African rhythms and traditions brought to the States by African slaves and by the spirituals, field hollers, work songs, and ballads developed over centuries of slavery and during the post-Civil War era, the Blues became among the most influential genres of music in the history of America. This volume traces the history of the Blues, from its roots into contemporary times, revealing how the influence of the Blues can be found in virtually all contemporary American popular music.
