SHOW 89: APR 07-APR 13, 2017
Billy Flynn cut his teeth with the likes of Jimmy Dawkins, Johnny Littlejohn and Big Jay McNeely. From sharing the Apollo Theater stage with Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, Billy Gibbons and others to backing Beyonce Knowles at Barack Obama's Neighborhood Inaugural Ball and on her Grammy winning single from the movie Cadillac Records; from his prolific sideman work to his ten albums as a leader, Billy Flynn is a true-blue heir of Delmark's storied legacy. His latest studio effort, Lonesome Highway features 16 new original songs and special guest vocalist Deitra Farr. Kim Wilson, who regularly calls Billy for sessions, observes calls Flynn 'one of the greatest blues guitarists alive and one of the greatest to ever live.'
