    I'm quit new music for a while and developed more of an appreciation for crucial blues and folk. List your favorites. Some recommendations:

    Leadbelly
    Woody Guthrie
    Mississippi John Hurt
    Robert Johnson
    Muddy Waters
    Dave Van Ronk (more folk, one of Dylan's biggest influences, i believe he wrote House of the Rising Sun)
    Pete Seeger (related to above)

    theyre an appalachian bluegrass band. I suggest getting their self-titled. their takes on traditional 'tell it to me' and 'wagon wheel' are incredible.

    never heard of them

    Our local jazz station has a Saturday AM bluegrass show. I'll try to find out if they broadcast on the net.

    I don't really know if you could classify Ryan Adams as a blues singer, i guess he's a Blues/Rock singer, but Have any of you heard of him? I love his music, and his earlier stuff with Whiskeytown is phenominal as well. check him out!

    I have to say I'm not really into folk. unless your talking about folk metal (celtic metal, pagan metal etc) but I've always kinda liked this band Steeleye Span, its sorta folk\rock more heavy on the folk than the rock though. anybody heard of em?
