Louisiana Red Still "Plays the blues hard"
It's summer, and that means, Iverson Minter, will return from Germany and tour the US during July. The Guitarist has played with the best Blues Musicians in Chicago and Detroit, and won a W.C. Handy Award for Best Traditional Blues Male Artist in 1983. His newest recording was released earlier this year, made in Norway, "Back To The Black Bayou."
His Father was lynched by the Klu-Klux-Klan, his Mother died at a young age. He grew up, into an artist that to this day, uses his emotions and improvises in live performances.It's long been said that you have to live the blues in order to play them. Louisiana Red, born Iverson Minter in Bessemer, Ala., has seen more than his share of the adversity and hard times, and his songs are powerful, passionate reflections of his life.
