From the Soundboard is a show that focuses on concerts regardless of genre. Artist and/or group perfecting the art of “call and response” with its audience. On Wednesday, August 24, we will focus on one of the pioneers of Electric Blues, Chester Arthur Burnett. The world knew him as Howlin’ Wolf.
“In the history of the blues, there has never been anyone quite like the Howlin’ Wolf. Six foot three and close to 300 pounds in his salad days, the Wolf was the primal force of the music spun out to its ultimate conclusion. No one could match him for the singular ability to rock the house down to the foundation while simultaneously scaring its patrons out of its wits.” Cub Koda [All Music Guide]
