The popularity of Mississippi John Hurt long after his death speaks to the legendary status this remarkable bluesman. His genuine style of playing and smooth, gentle vocals hold up well over time – this is early country blues, a bit more folkier.

Hurt taught himself to play the guitar around the age of nine. He worked as a sharecropper and played at dances, singing to his melody based, fingerpicking accompaniment. Although Hurt never had success as a recording artist, he was recorded by the Library of Congress in 1964 and Hurt is responsible for other Delta bluesman finding recognization and being brought out of retirement. This fueled the folk and blues revival.

Hurt performed at the 1963 Newport Folk Festival which made him more popular in the folk revival and he performed at colleges, concert halls, coffeehouses and even appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson. His fans particularly liked the songs “Salty Dog” and “Candy Man”.
