Join us for a Tribute to the Late Great Mississippi Delta Bluesman, Pinetop Perkins (July 7, 1913 – March 21, 2011). Pinetop’s best friend and Hubert Sumlin (proud recipient of the Living Blues Gold Award) has agreed to play with Willie “Big Eyes” Smith and the Pinetop Perkins band for two nights and two shows at Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley!
When Hubert Sumlin plays guitar he takes you to his World of Blues Feeling — from despair to ecstasy, from delicate grace to raw power, from lost to found. Though he’s influenced and inspired many of the most famous guitar players, Hubert owns the magic. His style is original and personal and instantly recognizable. To continue, please click “MORE”!
