Goleta Slim Makes Gala Return to Santa Barbara Blues Society -- Nov. 18
Posted: 10/12/17
For nearly three decades, Kim Wilson has been the voice and soul of the Texas band The Fabulous Thunderbirds. He’s also an accomplished solo recording artist, and in the minds of many people, the greatest harmonica player performing today. His new CD is entitled Lookin’ for Trouble. In 1970, he decided to drop out of college to play the blues full time, learning the ropes from such San Francisco Bay Area blues musicians as Charlie Musselwhite, John Lee Hooker and Sonny Rhodes. In the mid-1970s he moved to Austin, where he met Jimmie Vaughan, with whom he co-founded The Fabulous Thunderbirds in 1974.
Although Wilson has often been compared to legendary harmonica player Little Walter, he calls the analogy “sacrilegious.” He says his biggest influence was Muddy Waters, whom he befriended after moving to Austin. Although he acknowledges the influence of many great blues harmonica musicians, he calls his own playing a “very modern” take on a traditional music form that is thoroughly his own.
Doors will open at 7:00 PM. There will be free BBQ snacks, an outdoor patio, and a large, spring-loaded dance floor. Show begins at 8:00 PM.
