Little Joe Washington

Categories: Listen Up!
National treasure: Little Joe

Description: The last of the Third Ward blues guitar greats, Little Joe is also the wildest and perhaps the most creative musically. The pint-sized bluesman is just as likely to musically quote Gershwin as Lightnin' Hopkins. "National treasure" is not an over the top description.
