Saturday 3rd December: Little George Sueref
Born in the UK of Greek parents Little George moved to London to seek out a career path in music. He was deeply inspired by the classic down-home roots blues of Jimmy Reed, Snooky Pryor, J.B. Hutto and Muddy Waters, as well as the more soulful sounds of Johnnie Taylor and Sam Cooke. He joined the hardworking and hard playing Big Joe Louis & His Blues Kings as vocalist and harp player and toured all over the UK, Europe and the World. As time went on, Little George’s voice began to win its own dedicated coterie of fans and he decided to form his own band, whilst keeping his slot with Big Joe Louis. Blueprint magazine conferred their ‘Harp Of The Year’ award on him for three years running. He has recorded an album for Pussycat Records, featuring to-die-for collaborations from blues legends Lazy Lester and Jimmy Thomas, which went on to become a blues best seller on both sides of the Atlantic.
