    Geez, a blues section without a Lead Belly thread....

    Well, this is now the official appreciation thread for one of my favourite blues musicians!

    It is kind of hard to believe a thread hasn't been started before now. I know I have mentioned him throughout the forum, but more as a historical side note and "stepping stone" as it were.

    His story is truly unique. If it wasn't for the Lomax family, he probably would have died in prison without any of us hearing his landmark music.

    The Lead Belly foundation site is a great place to read more about this keystone artist.
