Kim Wilson is without doubt one of the great harmonica players around today.
He grew up within the vibrant music scene in California, learning his chops on the bandstand, which he hasn't got off since, touring extensively all his life.
Kim's long term band, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, has brought him commercial success, and he has also maintained his own dedicated blues band for many years.
He leads from the front, and absolutely knows what it takes to deliver the blues to an audience.
