Guitarist Lurrie Bell, son of harmonica legend Carey Bell, spent his childhood at the feet of such fabled bluesmen as Eddie Taylor, Big Walter Horton, and Pinetop Perkins. By his mid-20s Bell's resumé included recording sessions with Eddie C. Campbell and Eddy Clearwater, stints with Billy Branch's Sons of Blues and Koko Taylor, and several overseas tours. Bell’s elegant and intense guitar playing and passionate vocals have made him a favorite at clubs and festivals around the world. Living Blues Magazine named Bell “Best Male Guitarist” in 2014, followed by a Blues Music Award for “Traditional Blues Male Artist” in 2015.*cut if too long Bell’s 2016 Delmark album, “Can’t Shake This Feeling,” delivers a collection of songs (including 4 originals) rooted in the foundation of Chicago-styled traditional guitar blues, solidifying Bell's reputation as a leading light for the future of the blues.
