Special international guest artist: Lynwood Slim (USA)
Legendary US bluesman Lynwood Slim has returned to Australia for his third national tour and he's brought a couple of special guests with him! Since the early 70s, Lynwood Slim has been a mainstay of the fertile Los Angeles, Minneapolis and Chicago Blues Scenes and has worked with a virtual "who's who" of the blues world over the past 30 years. In addition to Big Walter Horton, gigs and collaborations with Muddy Waters, Junior Wells, Willie Dixon, Bo Diddley, PeeWee Crayton, RL Burnside, Big Mama Thornton, Hollywood Fats, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Junior Watson & Kid Ramos are all amongst his past and present. He is a frequent performer at major festivals and clubs worldwide.
