If you truly know anything about music, you know that the blues and folk are deeply intertwined – especially when you talk about the early acoustic blues albums. if you don’t believe me, listen to Muddy Waters‘ Folk Singer or early Robert Johnson recordings and tell me that you don’t see how they’re practically one in the same.  And when I heard Willie Watson’s “Keep It Clean” off his recently released debut album tiled Folk Singer, Vol. 1, I immediately thought of those old blues recordings; after all, the arrangement is sparse – Watson’s old-timey wail, accompanied by his adept and expressive picking.
