Billy Branch and Buddy Guy --- January 6, 2019 ---- Legends Chicago
Billy Branch moved the pace along with uptempo number after uptempo number. At one point he spoke of slowing the music down, joking no doubt, as a rapid beat immediately followed.
Billy Branch and his friend Lurrie Bell are the class acts of their generation of musicians, following the greats such as Buddy Guy, Otis Rush, and Magic Sam.
With a solid band backing him, Billy Branch is a joy to listen to. He shows his harp technique in many ways, playing a "lead harp" magnificently.
