North Mississippi Sound Playlist

So I became tired of sifting around Spotify to find all the North Mississippi goodness. I created a public playlist on Spotify with all the tasty Hill Country and Cotton Patch Soul Blues that you need. There is a heavy dose of all the great artists that are either from the North Mississippi scene or have captured that sound.

If you are curious and want to hear this style of music, take a peek. You will find the founders of the music highlighted here including, Junior Kimbrough, R.L Burnside, Jessie Mae Hemphill, Mississippi Fred McDowell, T-Model Ford, Robert Belfour and those that continue the sound like, the Kimbroughs, the Burnsides, Kenny Brown, Lightning Malcom, Carlos Elliot, Gabe Carter and Reverend KM Williams.

Enjoy
