Charlie Musselwhite

Box Office Charlie Musselwhite

GRAMMY award winner Charlie Musselwhite’s journey through the blues was from his birth in Mississippi to Memphis, Chicago and California. Arriving in Chicago in the early sixties, he was just in time for the epochal blues revival. In 1966 at the age of 22 he recorded the landmark Stand Back! to rave reviews. A precipitous relocation to San Francisco in 1967, where his album was being played on underground radio, found him welcomed into the counterculture scene around the Fillmore West as an authentic purveyor of the real deal blues.

More than 20 albums later he is at the top of his game, a revered elder statesman of the blues nowhere near ready to hang up his harps, his depth of expression as a singer and an instrumentalist unexcelled and only growing deeper. In an era when the term legendary gets applied to auto-tuned popstars, this singular blues harp player, singer, song-writer and guitarist has earned and deserves to be honored as a true master of American classic vernacular music. (Blues Harp Legend)
