Lightnin' Willie And The Poorboys
click their name to visit their own website
Arguably one of the very best Texas blues/roots/rockin' outfits ever to tread the boards, Lightnin’ Willy comes back to the UK to tour in support a brand new cracking album “Tracks” on the 145 label.
‘Willy’s a real cool cat a hell of a slide player’ - Austin City Limits.
Expect classy rockabilly injected blues from Texas, topped by Willy's dazzling slide guitar. Willie ‘s track ‘Bye Bye’ has just been featured in the award winning Robin Williams film ‘The Final Cut’.
LA based but hailing from Houston, Texas, Lightnin’ Willie is a rockabilly tinged blues man of the highest order. Combining a Texas feel with West Coast influences topped by peerless slide technique, the ultimate blues growl & Giles King’s blues harp, this is low down dirty Texas blues, as good as it gets.
