Josh White

To many blues enthusiasts, Josh White was a folk revival artist. It's true that the second half of his music career found him based in New York playing to the coffeehouse and cabaret set and hanging out with Burl Ives, Woody Guthrie, and fellow transplanted blues artists Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee. In Chicago during the 1960s, his shirt was unbuttoned to the waist à la Harry Belafonte and his repertoire consisted of folk revival standards such as "Scarlet Ribbons." He was a show business personality -- a star renowned for his sexual magnetism and his dramatic vocal presentations. Many listeners were unaware of White's status as a major figure in the Piedmont blues tradition. The first part of his career saw him as apprentice to some of the greatest blues and religious artists ever, including Willie Walker, Blind Blake, Blind Joe Taggart (with whom he recorded), and allegedly even Blind Lemon Jefferson. On his own, he recorded both blues and religious songs, including a classic version of "Blood Red River." A fine guitar technician with an appealing voice, he became progressively more sophisticated in his presentation. Like many other Carolinians and Virginians who moved north to urban areas, he took up city ways, remaining a fine musician if no longer a down-home artist. Like several other canny blues players, he used his roots music to broaden and enhance his life experience, and his talent was such that he could choose the musical idiom that was most lucrative at the time. ~ Barry Lee Pearson, Rovi

Pure, clean, blues. Beautiful.
There ARE two Josh Whites'. One is father and one is son. Josh White Jr. lived in northwest Detroit for the longest. He used to do concerts at the community center in his neighborhood . For a 15 year stretch, I saw him perform/soci a l i z e regularly. It was an honor.
i met Josh White in 1966 when i was a senior in high school and he was returning from a long absence from performing. My eldest son is named Josh in his honor...

why does the full bio link take me to this discography page?
" GOOD BLUES FROM THIS MAN " MR. F. THOMAS CLARK
There are two different artists named Josh White here. Is there a way to separate them? I'm interested in the one behind the Achor (2010) album, not the blues artist, though I'm sure he is good too :-)
They had a great bio on him here, where'd it go???

"I want to die easy when I die", he had fear of the beyond as just about all of us do. So haunting his lyrics. I love the blues

Have been listening to Josh White since I was little kid -- and that was a long, long time ago, when there were on LPs -- and his music has always affected me deeply.

I'm feeling it
I met Josh White in the summer of 1955 while I was a member of a summer stock company in the Catskills. Someone in the comapny knew him and brought his in and of course he was forced to entertain us. For three hours he sang and played a guitar with a missing string. It was an enchanting evening
