Special Guest: Steve Freund Pt 1

Mark sits down with blues guitar legend Steve Freund to talk about his career and blues history. Steve began his career in Chicago with Hubert Sumlin, Lee Jackson, Homesick James, Louis Myers, and many others. He spent two years working with Big Walter Horton and Floyd Jones, and in 1978 he became Sunnyland Slim’s main guitarist. Freund is the consummate piano accompanist working with Pinetop Perkins, Jimmy Walker, Henry Gray, Erwin Helfer and many more. Steve spent nine years working with harmonica legend James Cotton. Steve tours internationally and has played with and opens shows for Boz Scaggs.
