Englishman John Mayall may have first gained notoriety at the tender age of 13 for living in his backyard treehousethen even more so when he moved back there with his first wifebut it was after he relocated to the States that he was put down in the books as a major contributing artist to the world of blues. His band, John Mayalls Bluesbreakers, served as a launching pad for some of musics greatest players: Eric Clapton and Jack Bruce went on to form Cream, Peter Green, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood formed Fleetwood Mac, and Mick Taylor joined the Rolling Stones. This Friday, legendary Mayall headlines the Blues Harp Blowout blues extravaganza alongside Charlie Musselwhite, Lee Oskar, Curtis Salgado, Johnny Dyer and Reverend Blue.
