Son House Licensed Merchandise
100% Cotton T-Shirt
Son House's place, not only in the history of Delta blues, but in the overall history of the music, is a very high one indeed. He was a major innovator of the Delta blues, noted for his highly emotional style of singing and slide guitar playing. Son House relearned his repertoire and established a career as an entertainer, performing for young, mostly white audiences in coffeehouses, at folk festivals and on concert tours during the American folk music revival, billed as a "folk blues" singer. He recorded several albums, and some informally taped concerts have also been issued as albums. In 2017, his single "Preachin' the Blues" was inducted in to the Blues Hall of Fame.
