Lil’ Ed Williams is the nephew of J.B. Hutto, and a great artist in his own right. In addition to the great recordings he’s made for Alligator and Earwig, he has collaborated with Bob Corritore on a number of sessions. His version of his uncle’s song, Hip Shakin’, opens up Bob Corritore’s All-Star Blues Sessions record. Lil’ Ed also appears on one cut of Blues on My Radio, a celebration of 20 years of Bob’s radio show, “Those Lowdown Blues”. Special thanks to Lil’ Ed’s drummer, Kelly Littleton, for providing many of these photos, which offer an intimate view of life on the road with Lil’ Ed.
