Leon Redbone is a noted American guitarist and singer, known for his stylized performances of early jazz and blues songs.
Redbone usually performs old and often largely unknown songs from vaudeville and minstrel shows of the 1910s and '20s. He sings with a full, expressive baritone, often mumbling incoherently or yodelling. His guitar technique is excellent, with a quick, jaunty bounce.
