Slim Lightfoot

"Slim Lightfoot shows himself to be both an innovator and an explorer, constantly looking to see where he can take his beloved music next. Wherever it may be it’s sure to be one hell of a ride!" Michael Mee – Blues Matters! Aug / Sept ‘06 Slim Lightfoot plays blues infused music be it a down home old style delta tune via Son House to a rip roaring Electro like garage blues, taking along a Howlin' Wolf lick or two to liven up the brew or even an accordion to drive the groove.

Charlie Musselwhite

Musselwhite was born in the rural hill country of Mississippi. He has said that he is of Choctaw descent, and he was born in a region originally inhabited by the Choctaw. However, in a 2005 interview, he said his mother had told him he was actually Cherokee. His family considered it normal to play music, with his father playing guitar and harmonica, his mother playing piano, and a relative who was a one-man band. At the age of three, Musselwhite moved to Memphis, Tennessee.

Dave Thompson

Dave Thompson was nine when his father bought him a guitar and taught him how to play it. Sadly, his father did not live long enough to see Dave, at the age of 15, join the blues band Booba Barnes and the Playboys (later renamed the FM Stereo Band, following Barnes's departure). Life on the club circuit was, to say the least, eventful: Dave survived two car crashes and a bullet in the thigh, as well as having the odd brush with the law.

Samuel James

From Wikipedia:
"Take the songwriting of Bill Withers and Tom Waits. Now combine that with the soul power and energy of James Brown. And the charisma of P.T. Barnum. Enter in the guitar playing of Leo Kotke and you're starting to get an idea of what Samuel James is all about. The last of the great, ...black, American t...roubadours, Samuel James is a performer of stunning singularity. He has irreversibly changed what it means to be a solo act.
