Louisiana, 1960. Kenny Neal was three. In his living room, his father was hanging out with Buddy Guy and Slim Harpo. Nothing out of the ordinary for this family of musicians, but this time, Slim had a present for him: his very first harmonica. Years later, at 19, Kenny became the bassist for Buddy Guy and found himself with Muddy Waters involved in energetic jam sessions in Chicago. Guitar, microphone, and harmonica in hand, Kenny Neal continues to share everything he learned from his mentors. Nominated for best blues album at the 2017 Grammy Awards, his record Bloodline revisits the original Baton Rouge style: swamp blues. Featuring shuffle beats and creole rhythms, this genre is deeply indebted to the legendary Lightnin’ Slim. In 1972, he played the Montreux Jazz Festival, on the very spot that Kenny Neal will perform. Destiny.
