In 2015 we were lucky enough to have the deep southern blues of Big Daddy Wilson at Butters while he toured New Zealand. It's an experience like no other - which is how he felt about our country so this year he is back with the Big Daddy Wilson Band.

Take a Cadillac ride through the Southern States and you’ll hear a thousand flavours of music... “It’s a mixture of all the spices and good stuff,” says the award-winning US bluesman Big Daddy Wilson.

An unmistakable voice that soon won praise from the iconic Eric Bibb: “As soon as you hear Big Daddy Wilson’s voice, whether speaking or singing, you hear his southern country roots. It’s a voice baptised in the river of African-American song, a voice with the power to heal.”

A sentiment echoed by the thousands who have watched the Big Daddy Wilson Band perform on stages across the USA, Europe and Southern Hemisphere over the last two decades.

“For me,” he says, “it sits on top. The latest is always the greatest. I was in the mood like John L. Hooker said.” says Wilson.
