Blues » East Coast Blues » East Coast Blues

East Coast Blues combines two basic schools under one general umbrella heading. The first and most notable consists of disciples of the Piedmont school (primarily of the East Coast area's main Piedmont practitioner, Blind Boy Fuller -- also see separate listing on the Piedmont style) who had relocated along the East Coast by the early to mid-'50s and ended up comprising much of that city's early blues revival scene in the mid-'60s. The second school consists of both electric R&B artists and modern performers hailing from the area working in a variety of styles indigenous to the overall genre itself.
