As a teenager in Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood, Paul Butterfield broke cultural barriers by traveling to tough south and west side neighborhoods to learn at the feet of Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, and Little Walter. He then carried the blues torch to the predominantly white rock audience of the 1960s. Through his music and words, along with first-hand accounts of his family, his bandmates and the others closest to him, this is the complex story of the artist many call the greatest blues harmonica player of all time.
