Louisiana bluesman Sonny Landreth dominates contemporary slide guitar with a virtuosic style involving "wild" hammers, ghostly voicings, and Creole-inspired washboard effects.

Indigenous frontman Mato Nanji may hail from South Dakota's Nakota Nation, but his barroom boogie is as American as Ladies' Night.
