The James Street Preachers

The James Street Preachers is the way blues was played in Maxwell Street, Chicago, back in the day by train­hopping bluesmen surviving on their wits and musicianship. The duo began busking on James Street in Burleigh and quickly built up a following throughout the Gold Coast, paying home and taking influence from blues icons like Wylie Reed, Muddy Waters, Willy Dixon, Sonny Boy Williamson, Howling Wolf, Hound­dog Taylor, Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee.
