J.B. Hutto

Musician. Born Joseph Benjamin Hutto in Blackville, South Carolina, he was a blues artist known for his slide guitar playing and declamatory style of singing. In the early 1950s, he played with Johnny Ferguson and his Twisters in Chicago and did recording sessions with his band The Hawks. He became disenchanted with music in the late 1950s, but returned to the music industry in the mid 1960s with a new version of the Hawks and was signed to Vanguard Records. For the next two decades, his albums "Hawk Squat", "Slippin' and Slide'n" and "Rock With Me Tonight", were a major influence for many other blues performers. He died of cancer in Harvey, Illinois. In 1985, he was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame.
