lefthanded guitar What would you call this type of music (14) Folklore: What would you call this type of music 17 Nov 11

I was trying to explain to someone what one of my favorite types of music is- and I'm not sure I'm using the right term. It may be called folk-blues, or singersongwriter; but let me tell you the players I love that are in this category:

Mississippi John Hurt
Chris Smither
Steve Earle
Danny Kalb
Doc Watson
Rev. Gary Davis
early Bonnie Raiit

I've been calling it Country Blues, but not sure I"m right on that either. I welcome your analysis.
