Larry Bluesman

Guitarist Larry Bluesman was born in Mississippi 67 years ago and moved to Chicago with his family when he was “about ten years-old.” Inspired by the guitarists who played in church functions that his mother used to take him to, he eventually joined a travelling church choir and studied music at the Chicago Conservatory.

When not on the road, Mr. Bluesman performs in the Jackson Red Line station on Friday mornings.

“I like pleasing people,” he says. “That’s why I’m a musician.”
