Skip James

Skip James has been played on NTS in shows including The Meme Gold Show, featured first on 2 June 2017. Songs played include Hard Time Killing Floor Blues, Devil Got My Woman and Hard Times Killing Floor Blues.

Nehemiah Curtis "Skip" James (June 9, 1902 – October 3, 1969) was an American Delta blues singer, guitarist, pianist and songwriter.

His guitar playing is noted for its dark, minor-key sound, played in an open D-minor tuning with an intricate finger picking technique. James first recorded for Paramount Records in 1931, but these recordings sold poorly, having been released during the Great Depression, and he drifted into obscurity.
