Remembering – George “Mojo” Buford


Legendary blues harmonica player, George “Mojo” Buford passed away yesterday, October 11, 2011.  He was 81.  His early career consisted of playing in Muddy Waters junior band.  This band covered the Chicago dates when Muddy was on tour.  He eventually graduated to the back up band and began touring steadily.  He then struck out on his own, building his own repertoire.  The attached video is a live version of “Everything Going To Be Alright”.  The second is “Got My Mojo Working” from which he got his nickname.

RIP Mojo.

 

 

About John

I enjoy travel, sports, music and anything else that jumps up at me for the moment, which is why I blog. There will be lots of music and travel posts and a smattering of sports and humour. I enjoy promoting Canada and am unabashedly a proud Canuck.
