The Legends of the Rocking Dutchman - episode 227

Hey! Where ya from?

Today's selection is all made up of bluesmen and women with a state or city in their name. Often indicating where they're from, and sometimes not, but for the most of them a quality seal for good old-fashioned down home Southern blues.
