76 YEARS SOUL SURVIVOR - SOUL LEGEND WINNER OF THREE 2016 BLUES MUSIC AWARDS! BEST COMEBACK ARTIST OF THE YEAR BEST BLUES ALBUM AND BEST SOUL SINGER

Back to Blues Heaven here...

One of the gigantic musical re-discoveries last year was the soul singer, Wee Willie Walker (born 1941). He has a voice which may be compared with the likes of Sam Cooke, Wilson Picket, and Otis Redding. After being out of the limelight for several decades, he has now come to the fore with two new albums, first the comeback album, which has made critics use the finest of superlatives. The album and Willie have been nominated for the American Blues Music Awards in the categories ‘Album of the Year’, ‘Soul Blues Album of the Year’, and ‘Soul Blues Artist of the Year’. There are not many left in the blues – and soul world today whom you may frankly call ‘the real thing’, but Wee Willie Walker still is!

Wee Willie Walker has performed at countless venues and great festivals all over the world, but has never set foot in Denmark before. In the wake of his latest album he is now doing something about that and will be coming to Blues Heaven wearing a gold vest and straw hat, and bringing along 4 horn players, female background singers, a world-class drummer and all that jazz, on Friday, November 3rd in prime time!.
