Charlie Musselwhite

Origin: United States

Main instrument: Harmonica

Genre: Blues

A Mississippi native, singer-harmonica wizard Charlie Musselwhite landed in Chicago in the ’60s, swiftly establishing himself as one of the standard-bearers of the Windy City blues scene. After playing with legends like Little Walter and Sonny Boy Williamson, he launched his debut album, Stand Back!, in 1967. The record’s success in the San Francisco region called Musselwhite to move to the West Coast. Following extensive U.S. touring, he made his mark on the international scene in the late ’80s, also earning rave critical reviews for his studio work. His recent output has been especially inspired, including Get Up, a collaboration with album guitarist Ben Harper released on legendary Stax records in 2013.
