From the July/August 2022 issue of Acoustic Guitar | By Greg Cahill. Charlie Musselwhite gained fame as a world-class Chicago blues harmonica player, but his roots run deep in the Delta—he was born 78 years ago in Kosciusko, Mississippi, outside of Jackson. Raised in Memphis, Musselwhite mastered the harp, but also learned to play guitar under the tutelage of such blues-guitar legends as Furry Lewis, Will Shade, and Gus Cannon, as well as rockabilly great Johnny Burnette, a close family friend. Recently, Musselwhite moved from his longtime digs in fire-ravaged Northern California to his Mississippi home. The result is this 13-track album, recorded in Clarksdale, Mississippi.
