About this Event

“Lightnin’ Wells is an enigma and a wonder. You can hear the old Piedmont blues players speaking through him. You hear ragtime, early jazz, old-time banjo songs, harmonica, stories of life on the road…the unvarnished truth expressed through a deep and good-humored soul.” ~ Paul Brown

Raised in eastern North Carolina, Lightnin’ Wells taught himself to play the harmonica and guitar as he developed a strong interest in traditional blues and folk music. For decades he has presented his brand of acoustic blues throughout NC, the US and Europe. Lightnin’ Wells is also a life-long student and devotee of the pioneering performers in the Piedmont B lues tr adition which once thrived in the Carolinas, including such artists as Blind Boy Fuller, Rev. Gary Davis and Elizabeth Cotton, musicians whose influence continues to grow with time.
