Blues musician Eddy “The Chief” Clearwater is set to play the Music Box Supper Club on Friday, July 7th.
A musician of many talents, Eddy, who was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 2016, is an iconic figure in blues music for over 60 years. An accomplished singer-songwriter and an otherworldly guitarist, his sound has been described as “hard-driving Windy City blues, soul-tinged balladry, acoustic country blues and gospel uplift….good-natured fretboard fireworks.”
Raised in the South, Eddy moved to Chicago in 1950 and begin honing his craft with legendary Chicago blues-masters, particularly Magic Sam and Otis Rush. He recorded his first single in 1958 and hasn’t looked back since, recording and releasing a critically acclaimed catalog of his distinctive blues while touring the world non-stop. He often performs in a Native American headdress, hence, his nickname, The Chief.
