Blues » Delta Blues » Modern Delta Blues

Modern Delta Blues is essentially a revival of classic Delta blues traditions. Modern Delta blues musicians typically play acoustic country blues and only rarely amplify their instruments, since Delta blues is an acoustic tradition. Modern Delta blues rarely expands upon the traditions of Delta blues -- it simply keeps them alive.
