Charlie Musselwhite

po_Musselwhite-CharlieCharles “Charlie” Douglas Musselwhite (born January 31, 1944) is an American electric blues harmonica player and bandleader.

He is one of the non-black bluesmen who came to prominence in the early 1960s, along with Mike Bloomfield and Paul Butterfield. Though he has often been identified as a “white bluesman”, he claims Native American heritage. Musselwhite was reportedly the inspiration for Dan Aykroyd’s character in the Blues Brothers.
