Pedimont Blues Guitarist Etta Baker Dies At 93.

Atta Baker

I love the pedimont blues. Because it is just simple and sweet blues music. Mrs. Etta Baker, a great peidmont blues player has passed to the other side. If I were a better writer I would write something more fitting to remember this gentle soul by. A woman who played the blues with such passion and grace.

Due to my failings, instead I think it might be better to give links where you can go and possibly down load some of Mrs. Baker’s music if you have never heard her. I think her music says it better than I ever could.
