I am a great fan of Paul Butterfield, so it is no surprise that another harp player of that era (and still going strong)  also pleases my ears – Charlie Musselwhite.

Let’s listen

‘Stand Back’ was Charlie’s first and very successful album

‘Gone too long’  from the album ‘Delta Hardware’ (2006)

Pure and simple….’Please Remember Me’

A particularly poignant favourite – ‘Christo Redemptor’

Another old favourite…

He enjoys collaborating with other musicians  such as Big Walter Horton, Ben Harper and even the Buena Vista Social Club stars
