This list was created by Wiki, the Online Encyclopedia. I turned the list into profiles that I already had created. The missing links will be added soon.

Breaking artists up into genre or even 'type of blues' is a difficult task, as so many artists cross over to different areas over the course of their career or even the span of one CD! This is a new part of the site that will cover many types of blues when complete. I assume that some artists may be listed in different sections because of cross overs.

Feel free to let me know if one is put on a wrong page or even artists are missing from certain pages. Each link will open up in a new window/tab and play a song by the artist and let you read the profile. Simply close the page/tab to return back to this list to see another.
