Some commentators uphold the idea that Native Americans influenced the early history of the blues. Names like Charley Patton and Scrapper Blackwell often arise in noting the musicians that contributed to the development of the blues accordingly. Although musicologists tend to sorely disagree, proponents of the view argue for understanding the influences not solely in terms of musical style. They emphasize the need to investigate the nature of social and cultural interactions between native and black communities and the expression of their shared experiences in the blues. In collaboration with the National Museum of African American Heritage and Culture, this became the central topic of discussion at the National Museum of the American Indian's 2009 summer concert. My own brief research leads me to believe that no in-depth studies exist to confirm or disavow such perspectives.マイブーム??
