Serious Sam Barrett hails from Yorkshire, England. He will be hopping across the pond for SXSW this year to jam out on some of his blues inspired folk music. Barrett will be ultra close to one of his main tributaries of inspiration: the Delta Blues.
You know, England has always been a fan of blues. Ever since John Mayall’s Blues Breakers, Eric Clapton, and so on the blue bloods pump the blues. So when Serious Sam pumped through my headphones, I had to relish in the one tiny moment when I thought that is was a Mississippi bluesman and not some lanky dude with bad teeth. I’m looking forward to seeing him pluck and twang his way through some classic songs. Check out “Cocaine Blues.”[audio:http://18.104.22.168/audio/SeriousSamBarrett_CocaineBlues.mp3]
