'Rolling Stone - Part 1 and 2' ROBERT WILKINS, Delta Blues Guitar Legend Working Songs Country blues When African-American musical tastes began to change in the early 1960s, moving toward soul and rhythm and blues music, country blues found renewed popularity as "folk blues" and was sold to a primarily white, college-age audience. Traditional artists like Big Bill Broonzy and Sonny Boy Williamson II reinvented themselves as folk blues artists, while Piedmont bluesmen like Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee found great success on the folk festival circuit.[2] Contemporary country blues artists such as Ramon Goose have fused country blues and African styles of music to create new hybrids.
