Joe Louis Walker
This 60-year-old San Fran native immersed himself fully into the blues when he was in his mid-30s, and he's taken it deadly seriously since then, racking up numerous accolades for his work, including Grammys and WC Handy Awards. For anyone who thinks that Buddy Guy and B.B. are the last holders of the flame around, JLW and his mighty guitar have a lesson or to teach you. As a bonus, he does like to throw some downhome soul into the mix. With Watermelon Slim and Janiva Magness.
