Bluesman and all-around gentleman Lightnin Willie plays a mean brand of blues that is ultra-heavy on the groove, and his fans are moved to dance wherever he plays. And, he’s sho’ nuff played in some fancy places, too. He’s performed at Willie Nelson’s Fourth Of July Picnic, alongside Willie, Dylan, and Leon Russell. Also, he’s been part of the Ignite Series at the Royal Albert Hall over across the pond! His latest album’s title sums up his outlook on music–“No Black No White Just Blues,” for Little Dog Records. The blues needs more characters, y’all, and Lightnin’ Willie is one of the good ‘uns. A great man once said the blues is color blind, and “No Black No White Just Blues” backs up that statement in spades!
