'Airport Blues' - Silas 'The Godfather' Hogan

Silas 'The Godfather' Hogan was a Louisiana swamp blues musician. Swamp blues is a sub-genre of the blues based in Louisiana around the Baton Rouge area.

Although he was an active guitar player, we would only record his first album in the mid-60's while he was in his 50's.

He didn't reach high popularity, yet his deep blues sound is sought after by many musicians.

Here's one of his famous tunes called 'Airport Blues' recorded in 1963.
