Thursday Night Live Blues Featuring Willie Buck

with Thaddeus Krolicki , Ariyo and Harlan Terson

Willie Buck’s career as a blues singer began slowly after he arrived in the “Windy City,” Chicago, in the 1950s. He quickly got into the circles by exploring, through a relative, Muddy Waters at his standard gig venue, the renowned Sylvio's Club in West Side. Muddy Waters is a name to which he has often been stylistically compared, but Willie has created his own career and song respecting traditions.
