A Candle For Louisiana Red

It is such a shame! I heard only a few days ago of his passing. A German Blues fan  keeps me informed about such things.  Louisiana Red died Feb. 25, 2012, at age 79 at a hospital in Hannover, Germany. He  lived  there since 1981 with his wife Dora.

With him, another through and through traditional and genuine blues man is gone.

RIP Louisiana Red

    • Hi,

      how have you been? It is so sad that such original American artists like Louisiana Red had to leave the US to make a living. There were two great articles in the German press about him and his life. Very, very interesting. “Champion” Jack Dupree lived in Hannover, too.
