Abe Reid is a past winner of the International Blues Competition in Memphis.
He learned straight from the old-timey greats and pays them tribute by keeping the Blues alive and full of grit.
His powerful voice, "talking" harmonica, and down-home personality have taken Abe and his guitar around the world-
from Statesville, NC to Switzerland...
from back porch to Beale Street Blues.
