Songs inspired by Cotton's colorful and sometimes perilous life and his memories of the Mississippi Delta, Sonny Boy Williamson II, Memphis, Sun Records, Chicago, and Muddy Waters.
If you get the chance, definitely try to catch up with Selwyn this year! "When you come to a show, you see four dudes, or however many people on stage, doing what they love doing. We do everything we can just to play the best music we can (and) try to give the people what they want."
Lucky Peterson is definitely a student of the blues. With the release of Live At The 55 Arts Club Berlin, Peterson and company are at the top of their game. For fans, this release is a treat. For the uninitiated, this is gonna rock your world!

Luther "Guitar Jr" Johnson returns to Chan's Eggrolls, Jazz, and Blues this Friday after recording a live CD at the venue in June.
