Sean Chambers Headed to Big Bend Blues Bash July 27< < Back to
Blues, as a genre, is largely about authenticity. Although skill is obviously a huge component of how true to the genre any musician can be, authenticity, and a sense of history, is also a huge part of what makes the blues the blues, and few might know that better than Florida-born blues guitarist Sean Chambers.
In 1998 Chambers found himself touring with the great Hubert Sumlin, who famously played alongside Howlin’ Wolf. Chambers played with Sumlin until 2003, and during that time Chambers had the opportunity to play with some true blues greats. Most recently, Chambers released Trouble and Whiskey, which hit #11 on the Billboard charts, and #7 on the Living Blues chart within the first week of it’s release.
On July 27, Sean Chambers will perform at the Big Bend Blues Bash in downtown Pomeroy. WOUB’s Emily Votaw spoke to Chambers about his career in the blues, Trouble and Whiskey, and his upcoming performance at the Big Bend Blues Bash.
