SURVIVOR BLUES: Two of the greatest blues musicians – together!

 

John Mayall

Often referred to as “The Godfather of British Blues,” John Mayall has an impressive musical career that spans over 50 years. The English blues singer, pianist, harmonica player, guitarist, and songwriter founded the band, John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers in the 1960s — a band whose members included many celebrated blues and blues rock guitarists, such as: Eric Clapton, Peter Green, Jack Bruce, Mick Taylor, Walter Trout, Coco Montoya and Buddy Whittington. Recently, Mayall has been experiencing a true artistic and career rennaisance, including a Blues Hall of Fame induction in 2016

Walter Trout

Walter Trout’s career has spanned the globe, and delivered notoriety as one of the great purveyors of the blues and blues rock. Trout’s history is equal parts thriller, romance, suspense and horror. From 1973, when he left his New Jersey home, he has shared the stage with Jesse Ed Davis, Big Mama Thornton, John Lee Hooker, Lowell Fulson, Joe Tex, and of course the great John Mayall (following a three year tenure in Canned Heat). His solo career has established a deep legacy in the world of Blues, Americana, and the realm of revered singer/songwriters. Trout continues to deliver inspired recordings, performances, and a voice that articulates relevant ideology and insights in to The World.
