jimmyt Origins: Origins of folk and blues (14) Origins: Origins of folk and blues 30 Jun 07

SOrry the title is a bit daft, but I wanted to attract enough wise mudcatters to throw in their 2 cents in this. I have just begun playing blues and Jayne, my wife, has accompanied me to a few gigs. She is a fine musician in her own right and is interested in other styles. This morning, she asked me to define the differences and similarities of the 2 genres. I blustered on for a few minutes mostly about musical form, but the more I thought about it, I felt it was a question that may very well be asked of the people who know more than I ever will in a lifetime about either style. Please feel free to give your opinions.
