Smokestack Lightnin' Home Page -- The Blues Profile Page
Arthur Duncan is the last of the real deal Chicago Bluesman. Born in
Mississippi 73 years ago, he has been on the Chicago Blues scene since
it's heyday in the 1950's. Arthur has played the bars and saloons on the
Westside of town and has even owned a couple of clubs himself. Little
Arthur's style follows the Chicago greats like Jimmy Reed and Howlin'
Wolf and he sounds today as if you were in a bar on West Madison Street
in 1959. This is the rough and tumble blues that made Chicago famous.
Little Arthur passed away Aug. 20, 2008 after spending several months
in the hospital as the result of a stroke.
