Epic Songs for Monday

 Huddie William Ledbetter better known by the stage name Lead Belly, was an American folk and blues singer notable for his strong vocals, virtuosity on the twelve-string guitar, and the folk standards he introduced, including his renditions of "In the Pines", "Goodnight, Irene", "Midnight Special", "Cotton Fields", and "Boll Weevil". Let's listen to this fantastic "The Bourgeois Blues". What an artist, this the blues! Enjoy!
