“We are so excited to host the performance of David Maxwell to benefit

to reach the heart of post-war Chicago Blues. Through his work,
he has gained the respect of artists, critics and fans and has

In the last decade, David has received over a half dozen WC Handy and

sessions and can be found playing keys on many blues albums that have
been released over the last 25 years.
Mr. Maxwell’s music was used in the movie “Fried Green Tomatoes” and in
