Reds or blues[edit]

This is an ongoing, 'work in progress' list, relating primarily to 'obscure' blues musicians. However, several of those listed may well fall into the R&B, country and/or jazz genres. It is likely that some of those currently listed will fail the current Wikipedia notability criteria. If that is clearly the case, then I will remove those names. Otherwise, and allowing for the usual verifiable sources being available, then the quest is to change a fair number of the 'red links' into 'blues' (pun intended).

As this list is now public property, I have absolutely no objection to anyone with an interest seeking to assist. It would be helpful, to avoid potential duplication of effort, if anyone contributing makes their interest known. Thank you.
