Charlie Musselwhite 

As a teenager in Memphis in the 1950s, Charlie Musselwhite made money by laying cement, digging ditches, and bootlegging moonshine. All the while, he dreamed of making it big as a blues-harp player. Sometimes referred to as "Memphis Charlie," Musselwhite became one of the few non-black blues musicians to emerge in the '60s. Musselwhite has released more than 20 albums and is currently on tour promoting his newest, Delta Hardware. He is honored with a brass note on Beale Street's Walk of Fame.
