BLUES WALKIN’ LIKE A MAN celebrates the music of one of the most important founders of the country blues style, “Eddie” Son House. House was mentor and teacher to Robert Johnson, and, 40 years later, to Rory Block. In the liner notes Rory tells how, at 15 years old, she sat face to face with Son House and learned more than just notes and techniques but invaluable information about the passion and spirit of the music, lessons straight from the source that have inspired her throughout her career. Culminating in this recording are years of dedication, passion, and perspective conveyed to Rory by one of the greatest masters of the style. This is the follow up recording to Rory’s Robert Johnson tribute The Lady and Mr. Johnson, winner of the 2007 Blues Music Awards Acoustic Album of the Year
