Archie Edwards Brief Biography

Archie Edwards (September 4, 1918 – June 18, 1998) was an American Piedmont blues guitarist, who in a sporadic career spanning several decades worked with Mississippi John Hurt, Skip James, and John Jackson. His best-known recodings are "Saturday Night Hop", "The Road Is Rough and Rocky", and "I Called My Baby Long Distance". In the late 1950s he owned a barbershop, which attracted blues musicians who helped to start his musical career.

Describing his musical style, Edward said, "I play what they call the old Piedmont style, but I call it East Virginia blues 'cause that's where I learned it".
