Blues Roots/Chicago - The 1930's

As the Depression's early days brought Southern musicians to Northern cities, the Chicago blues scene absorbed and incorporated these new arrivals. Ensembles grew, the blues became more popular, and individual musicians' styles combined to form a sound that reflected musicians' familiarity with each other and the creativity each brought to the session.
