A white teenage harmonica player from the South Side of Chicago, Paul learned the blues from the original black masters performing nightly in his own backyard, including his lifelong friend and mentor Muddy Waters. The only artist to perform at The Newport Folk Festival in 1965, The Monterey Pop Festival in 1967, and the Woodstock Festival in 1969, Paul would continue to break new ground in the blues, and to stand up for racial equality, until his untimely death at age 44. Through his music and words, along with first-hand accounts of his family, bandmates, and those closest to him―Bonnie Raitt, B.B. King, and Bob Dylan, among others―Horn From the Heart tells the complex story of a man many call the greatest blues harmonica player of all time.
