is an American music legend. There is no
question that for pure blues guitar talent, Johnny
Winter needs to be mentioned when looking at blues
musicians. Johnny has spent his life mastering
a number of varied blues styles and that what
makes him such a treat to listen to. In general,
though, when you think of Johnny's style you think
of undiminished scorchin' fury and passion. Using
an unwound G string and lighter gauge strings
helps Johnny do the bending that is his trademark.
You hear the influence of T-Bone Walker in his
songs by the way the feel of his songs change
by starting in one meter and changing to another.
With Johnny it is hard to say where the blues
stops and rock 'n' roll begins. He always has
played both of them. While this seems to bother
some blues purists, as Muddy said "The Blues had
a baby and they named it Rock 'N' Roll".
Alabama Blues himself, K.D. Bell, thrills audiences
with his soulful vocals and fun loving
of rhythm & blues. This veteran performer
and crowd pleaser will have you on your feet whether
it's his his soulful rendition of Wilson Pickett's
"I Found A Love" or his rollicking "Hi-Heel Sneakers,"
rockabilly blues at its roadhouse best.

of the 2001 Blues Trust Lifetime Achievement Award,
Shirley Lewis has performed professionally since
early childhood with her father and brothers as
the Lewis Gospel Singers. Though she became
an accountant, the music eventually won out.
She traveled to Las Vegas, San Francisco, ending
up in Vancouver. B.C. in 1972. She toured
throughout Canada until 1985.
In the mid-1980's, Lewis moved to Boston to be
closer to her family. Shirley Lewis is a
gifted vocalist who sings from the heart, like
many of her fellow Jersey and Philadelphia R&B
Montgomery ranks among the unsung bandleaders
who keep New England's blues scene alive and well.
The harp player's resume includes John Lee Hooker
and Mick Jagger, and the muscular blues/rock of
his new release "Bring It On Home" bridges the
gap between these icons.
