Blues » Louisiana Blues » Acoustic Louisiana Blues

While arguably more of a geographical than a singular stylistic distinction, Acoustic Louisiana Blues nonetheless has a flavor all its own. With distinctly folk leanings to its basic makeup, the form imparts a sometimes backwoods-front porch ambience to both its sound and its stylings. Rough and informal by nature, the genre pays no particular homage to any specific influences, yet is reflective of the spirit and ambience of its country surroundings. Its lyrical content can vacillate between common folk themes (some dating to the turn of the century) to surprisingly confessional and personal ones as well, often imparting a taut emotional atmosphere to the music.
