Lil' Jimmy Reed

About

LIL' JIMMY REED - your chance to catch the last of the Louisiana bluesmen Leon Atkins, better known as Lil' Jimmy Reed, is the real deal, as will be attested to by anyone who has been privileged to hear his stinging guitar work, gritty vocals and haunting harmonica. A tall charismatic figure, Lil' Jimmy epitomises the classic Louisiana down-home blues tradition.

His many fans recognise that Lil' Jimmy's performances are almost the last chance to hear the raw, unadulterated sound of authentic Louisiana blues.

In Lil' Jimmy's band, BOB HALL is an award-winning British pianist and founder of several famous 60s/70s British blues bands including The Groundhogs and Savoy Brown.

He has accompanied many world-class bluesmen, both live and on recordings  - John Lee Hooker, Howlin' Wolf, Chuck Berry and Little Walter, to name just a few.

His partner, diminutive dynamo HILARY BLYTHE, is an outstanding blues and gospel singer and rock steady bassist.
