John Primer grew up on Mississippi sharecropper land in 1945, inspired by his family’s hard work and field songs daily, deep devotion to spirituals on Sundays, and blues on Saturdays! 

He moved to Chicago in 1963 and found work immediately.

 

He worked with the legendary Sammy Lawhorn and Junior Wells at Theresa's Lounge. He worked hard and impressed Willie Dixon enough to go on tour with him and his Chicago Blues All-Stars Band.

 

In 1981 he got to play with his idol, Muddy Waters! Muddy called for him to lead his band. After Muddy’s untimely death (1983), he joined up with Magic Slim & The Teardrops for the next 14 years, traveling all over the world. 

 

He has been recorded more than 87 albums with 17 albums in his own name. He has written and produced more than 55 songs on more than 6 record labels.

 

Earning 2 Grammy Award nominations, given 2 Lifetime Achievement Awards, inducted into the Chicago Blues Hall of Fame, awarded the "Muddy Award" for being a traditional blues icon, winning a Blues Music Award, Blues Blast Awards and countless other awards, John Primer is a legendary Chicago Blues Icon!

 

Other than his appearance at the Springing The Blues Festival, this is John’s only Florida Appearance scheduled for 2022.
