WALKIN CANE MARK
Walkin’ Cane Mark has been an established harmonica player on the vibrant Phoenix Blues scene for over 20 years with several albums under his belt. He was discovered in part by Chico Chism (the Howlin’ Wolfs last drummer). He got his first harmonica lesson from Snooky Pryor. Willie Dixon gave him his nickname and the title track for his first effort, Gravedigger. Junior Wells taught him how to put funk in the blues and co-wrote the title track to his fourth album, Tryin’ to Make You Understand. Mark has toured heavily with Nappy Brown and Wayne Cochran.
