Hubert Sumlin is one of the Blues' all-time great guitarists. Most prominently known for his work with Howlin' Wolf, Sumlin has had a career that has influenced many modern greats including Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, and many more - including his co-performer in this clip; Kenny Wayne Shepherd.
Nearly twenty years ago at the age of thirteen, Kenny Wayne Shepherd was touted as "The next Stevie Ray Vaughan." He was signed to a professional recording contract shortly thereafter and has been making great music ever since. His album Trouble Is... had six singles and holds the record for the longest stay on the Billboard Blues chart. Additionally, Fender Musical Instruments Corp. has a signature Stratocaster designed by Shepherd.
Offered in the clip are two Howlin' Wolf classic songs performed by Hubert Sumlin and The Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band - blues standard Sittin' on Top of the World, and Highway 49. Taking the vocals for the end of the set is Noah Hunt, the vocalist for The Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band.
