Blues musicians are musical artists who are primarily recognized as writing, performing, and recording blues music.[1] They come from different eras and include styles such as ragtime-vaudeville, Delta and country blues, and urban styles from Chicago and the West Coast.[2] In the last several decades, blues music has developed a less regional character and has been influenced by rhythm and blues, rock, and other popular music.
