- BLUES MASTER -
Welcome to the life of a blues master. James Henry Cotton is an American blues harmonica player, singer and songwriter, who has performed and recorded with many of the great blues artists of his time and with his own band.
When Williamson’s band unraveled, Cotton journeyed to Memphis and earned his way through his teenage years as a street performer and shoeshiner. One night, Cotton caught wind of a Howlin’ Wolf performance in town. He rushed over with his harp, introduced himself, and before the age of 15, found himself on tour with another blues legend.
Clancy's comment: Another very talented man, and still performing. Man, you have to love that sort of passion.
