Charlie Musselwhite - Touring New England in support of The Well

Famed harmonicist/vocalist/songwriter/guitarist Charlie Musselwhite celebrates his return to Alligator Records with his new CD, The Well, and a live performance at;

Tupelo Music Hall in Londonderry on Thursday, September 16, 2010
Venue Music Bar and Grille in Portland on Friday, September 17, 2010.
The Met in Pawtucket on Saturday, September 18, 2010.

The album is an authentic slice of Charlie's deep blues roots with musical flavors from Mississippi to Chicago to California, including help on one song from legendary vocalist and friend Mavis Staples.

The Well is the first full-band recording in Musselwhite's almost 50-year career in which he wrote every track on the album, and it is the most personal and emotionally open cycle of songs he has ever created. The revealing, autobiographical songs recall specific events and places in Musselwhite's amazingly colorful life. His worldly-wise vocals and masterful harmonica work are perfectly matched with the stories he tells. Simply put, The Well is Charlie Musselwhite at his very best.
