BLUES AND MORE FROM
For those who love the
blues, there is a harmonica and guitarist named Maria
Coyote out of Sweden . Very powerful Delta blues style,
with a freedom in performance that was present in the

"It made me happy to
hear this. The guitar sound authentic and genuin in the

"She treat the guitar the same the old blues legends did.
On harmonica she is a master. Poweful voice,"

the masters. For the non-American influenetial harmonicists,
the list is so long that I can't make a choice."
