Probably the first blues instruments were vocal along with piano and guitar with some kind of percussion along with it. Today almost any instrument can play blues. Blues music is a state of mind and a harmonic progression, not a particular instrument.

origins are from prison work songs that were sung in order to keep rhtym when working together, also spirituals, instruments ranged from the washboard the jug and the harmonica, to the guitar etc.
