Lightnin’ Hopkins – Boogie Blues

Sam “Lightnin'” Hopkins learned the blues from Blind Lemon Jefferson in the Twenties. The enduring musical journey of Sam Lightnin’ Hopkins began on a cotton farm in Centerville,Texas in 1912. His style was born from spending many hours playing informally without a backing band. His distinctive style often included playing, in effect, bass, rhythm, lead, percussion, and vocals, all at the same time.
