David "Honeyboy" Edwards

David

Biography

Honeyboy Edwards serves as a link between the Delta Blues of folks such as Charlie Patton and Robert Johnson, and what evolved into the modern Chicago Blues of Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf. Born in 1915, Edwards' career did not truly ignite until the blues revival of the '60s and '70s. A strong singer with a warm, gravelly voice and a propulsive guitarist who mixed thumping bass string rhythms with shards of melodies on the high strings, Edwards became very popular on the club and coffeehouse folk/blues circuit.
