Eddie Kirkland

Called the “Gypsy of the Blues”, Eddie Kirkland has lived and played the blues for eternity. Born in Jamaica and raised in Alabama, Eddie became a journeyman at an early age. He has toured with the great musicians who have shaped rhythm and blues: Otis Redding, John Lee Hooker, Ben King, Little Richard, Ruth Brown, and many other greats.

Eddie continues to tour with a talented group of musicians. If you have the good fortune, like we have, see this man play guitar and sing the blues. He is also a gentleman, signing autographs and talking with the crowd. At a show at Darwin’s in Atlanta, he gave me an autographed 45 rpm record.
