Steve Morse and Johnny Copeland:

I love Steve Morse's guitar style. It's commonly referred to as "fusion," and what it is is a fusion of rock, country, and jazz, with rock as the dominant element, country the secondary, jazz tertiary, all played at the level of virtuosity. And as this clip shows, Morse plays blues as well. (He plays classical too.)

I have a feeling though, that Morse's style is "too refined to be blues" for the usual crowd (Sandefur, Brayton, and M. Kuznicki).
