Monday morning blues: If you don't love blues, you hate America

I know the image is Charley Patton, but it's Henry Sims singing and playing violin.  Charley Patton is only accompanying on guitar.  Yes, a violin in blues.  Played by a black man in 1929.  Oh, did you think that kind of thing didn't happen?

Next thing you know, people will forget that the banjo is of African origin...
