Chicago Blues Music

Delta-bred musicians migrated to Chicago in the 1930s and '40s. These musicians married the rolling rhythms of Country Blues to the Chicago club scene. Howlin' Wolf, Elmore James & Muddy Waters formed amplified blues bands with fellow discharged servicemen. Chicago Blues lives today through Buddy Guy and James Cotton and a growing list of newcomers.
