Blues Harmonica Legend James Cotton: July 1, 1935 - March 16, 2017
The Chicago Blues Festival is deeply saddened by the passing of the legendary James Cotton - a true giant and blues harmonica master. Mr. Cotton was scheduled to perform at the festival this year with Billy Branch. We were honored to have him perform on the festival stage in 2013 for a Chicago Blues set like no other! May he rest in peace.
