Musicians honor Little Walter with second annual festival in Alexandria
It was the second Little Walter Music Festival, and acts came from as far away as Japan.
“Blues music grabbed the heart of the Japanese people,” she said. “Little Walter is a legend. He is very, very famous.”
Nacomi Tanaka and the Blues Temple traveled from Osaka to Alexandria to play a short mid-day set at the festival.
Tanaka said Little Walter is quite popular in Japan, thanks to a blues revival that spread through the country in the late 1970s.
