Lil’ Jimmy Reed

Lil’ Jimmy Reed

Cast Second Space (unallocated)

Thu 19 October


One of the last surviving performers of classic Louisiana down-home blues!

From shot-gun shack and cotton-field to festival main stage, the prodigious talents of Lil’ Jimmy Reed have taken him a long way from the Mississippi River. 


Lil’ Jimmy’s stinging guitar work, gritty vocals and haunting harmonica have been taking Europe by storm. His music has won him many awards and an induction into the Blues Hall of Fame.  He is accompanied by the ‘A’ Team, comprising pianist Bob Hall - widely regarded as the UK’s finest blues and boogie exponent - and diminutive dynamo, outstanding blues and gospel singer, and rock steady bassist Hilary Blythe.


You put on a hell of a show” - Harvest Blues Festival Director (Monaghan, Eire)
