Mark Hummel - Mark Hummel's Remembering Little Walter
Calgary Bluesest Mainstage 2019
Grammy Nominee, Blues Award Winner, Author, Harp Man Mark Hummel Mark started the Blues Survivors in 1977 with Mississippi Johnny Waters. By 1984 Hummel began a life of non-stop touring of the US, Canada and overseas, which he still continues at least 130-150 days out of each year. Hummel has toured or recorded with blues legends Charles Brown, Charlie Musselwhite, Lowell Fulson, Billy Boy Arnold, Carey Bell, Lazy Lester, Brownie McGhee, Eddie Taylor, Luther Tucker and Jimmy Rogers.
Mark now brings an all star band to the stage to perform the music, featuring Hummel with Billy Boy Arnold (Bo Diddely), Magic Dick (Jay Geils), Grammy winning guitarist/vocalist/multi instrumentalist Billy Flynn ( Otis Rush, Legendary Blues Band, Kim Wilson), Grammy nominated guitarist/multi instrumentalist/vocalist Nathan James, bassist RW Grigsby & drummer Wes Starr (Asleep at the Wheel, Jimmy Vaughn, Delbert, Marcia, Omar & Howlers).
Hummel is a road warrior - a true Blues Survivor. Along the way, he has crafted his own trademark harmonica sound - a subtle combination of tone, phrasing and attack combined with a strong sense of swing. Mark has been with Electro Fi Records since 2000, releasing five CDs. Thanks to Mark's earlier albums, constant touring and appearances at the major blues festivals, he's firmly established his solid reputation around the US and Europe.
