On Friday December 3, 2021 Kim Wilson’s Blues All-Stars will roll into Tucson. Kim Wilson, best known as the leader of the long running Fabulous Thunderbirds is surely one of the best Blues singers and harmonica players in the music business. His harmonica and voice graced the albums of Bonnie Raitt, Buddy Guy, Eric Clapton, Mark Knopfler, James Cotton and more. A series of acclaimed solo albums, along with 30 years of award-winning Fabulous Thunderbirds recordings and hundreds of live performances have guaranteed him a place in history.
Kim Wilson’s Blues All-Stars is indeed that, a roundup of some of the best in the Blues. Appearing with Kim will be guitarist Billy Flynn. Billy has played with Otis Rush, Pinetop Perkins and Mississippi Heat, and has a recent album of his own on Chicago’s Delmark Records label. He has recently been working with Alligator Records recording artists The Cash Box Kings. Bob Welsh is a regular member of Elvin Bishop’s band and has toured and recorded with Bonnie Raitt, Mark Hummel, James Cotton, Pinetop Perkins, James Harman and many others. Marty Dodson on drums, and Kedar Roy on bass are two of the West Coast’s most in-demand musicians.
Tucson’s own Michael P & The Gullywashers open the show with a set of irresistible dance Blues. BBQ from Allyn Haynes Catering will be available for purchase.
