Hailing out of Chicago, 3-time Grammy nominee Billy Branch is an ambassador of authentic Chicago Blues. With his band, he has done over 70 international tours, and he is a pioneer in Blues education, having taught thousands of children around the world. He has been called “a fire-kissed harp-playing protégé of blues great Willie Dixon” (by whom he was discovered and with whom he toured) and is known to “effortlessly segue from vintage Little Walter to up-to-the-minute funky blues without dropping a beat.” Billy has won multiple W.C. Handy Awards from the Blues Foundation, an Emmy Award, two Chicago Music Awards, and numerous humanitarian achievement awards.
