Bessie SmithSong: Gimme A Pigfoot

Artist: Bessie Smith

Description: This is not really a Lindy Hop song, but a fabulous and very historically important vintage Blues song. It’s tempo is just quick enough that you could do a little bit of Lindy Hop to it, but really it’s the vibe of the song that you’ll want to embrace. Bessie Smith really sets the feeling of the era that we love so much.
