    My friend Sophelia (not misspelled) is Navajo and thinks a lot of him. Never met him myself but he's got a lot of potential.

    Interesting, good playing, nice voice. This piece (wonder if the author is related to another well known music scholar with the same last name?) suggests that "the blues" was never solely an African-import and that elements of it are indigenous to America, pulling from a variety of influences: http://www.utne.com/arts/history-of-...z1306zpit.aspx

      Bill - If you look carefully, some blues lyrics could be said to have similar structure and meter to old Gaelic laments. Or Native American chants for that matter.
