David "Honeyboy" Edwards is one of the few remaining original practitioners of the acoustic Delta blues style. As a guitarist and country blues singer, Edwards has been playing "traditional and unadulterated Mississippi Delta blues" since he left his home in Shaw, MS, at the age of fourteen. Though Edwards took up electric blues in the 1960s and has since worked on occasion with a band, he still performs authentic solo acoustic country blues and is living testament of the music's vitality. In just a half century, Louisiana Red has learned to not only play the blues, but lives it through his guitar and his singing. He has been strongly influenced by Muddy Waters, Lightnin' Hopkins and Arthur Crudup.
