Kim Field about his new book 2022 on Billy Boy Arnold // Coffeeshop Conversations @ Artichoke Music #326

By TOM D'ANTONI // Blues harmonica player Kim Field on his amazing new book, "The Blues Dream of Billy Boy Arnold." Kim spent many months recording conversations with him and this remarkable first-person autobiography is the result. Tales of ALL of the great Chicago Blues folks.

Still a few weeks away from returning to the Café at Artichoke Music so we have to put up with other means. Lucky for us I’ve got Blues harmonica player and writer Kim Field on the line.  He was with us a few years ago and he’s back now because he has a new book, The Blues Dream of Billy Boy Arnold on the legendary Chicago Blues Harmonica player.

It's in first person because he spent a long time in conversation with Billy Boy, who is now 86 years old with seemingly perfect recall.

Tales of Bo Diddley, Sonny Boy Williamson and the whole panoply of Chicago Blues greats. Let’s get started.

Here’s Kim Field.
