is this correct information?

The passage emphasizes the influence that early blues had on later genres. The genres that emerged following blues gave rise to a new culture in the wake of each respective era. The essence of American folk music fused with early blues was generally political and influenced by social movement. Folk music was known to be in association with “left wing extremists” and continued to uphold this stigma in the 1950s until the introduction of “The Kingston Trio”. This group was highly ubiquitous and influenced later artists to pursue the genre. However, the artists that followed the Kingston Trio upheld the original stigma that folk music was in association with left wing social movements (i.e., Joan Baez).

 Blues music began to infiltrate the streets of Britain, becoming well known to Jazz artists and fans. The introduction of Muddy Waters in 1958 astonished the British audience when his revelation of electric blues took the country by storm. The last of blues in Britain remained until the last 1960s. Nevertheless, the remaining bands used their experience in the electric blues genre as a leeway to rock music. A louder version of blues rock inevitably evolved to early heavy metal, giving birth to bands we still know today such as Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath.

The blues remains alive in the music we have today. Additionally, in the 1970s, soul music influenced the genre of Motown, Chicago soul, Memphis soul, psychedelic rock & psychedelic soul.
