Little Sammy Davis is one of the last, great living Delta bluesmen. Born in 1928 in Wynona Mississippi, Sammy took up the harmonica by the age of 7. In no time he was entertaining on street corners and traveling medicine shows all over the south. Sammy left Mississippi on the back of a chicken truck and eventually ended up in Florida.

He joined up with many blues greats, including Earl Hooker, Pine Top Perkins, Ike Turner, and Albert King. For awhile, Sammy played in a band with both Earl Hooker and Albert King. However as Sammy puts it, “Unfortunately the band didn’t last but a few weeks,” as the two mighty rivals, Hooker and King eventually came to blows, dissolving the band. All totaled, Sammy spent nine years on the road playing with Earl Hooker. When Sammy finally parted ways with Hooker, he headed to Chicago where he played constantly and shared the stage with many greats, including Muddy Waters, Little Walter, and Jimmy Reed. During that time, Sammy would often be called to front Little Walter’s band, “The Mighty Aces” when Walter couldn’t show for a gig. Little Sammy Davis currently lives in Orange County, New York and continues to sing and play harmonica as a member of Levon Helm’s band. He also plays gigs with Fred and his own touring band. As his eightieth birthday approaches, Sammy is happy and healthy as ever and receiving the recognition he so rightfully deserves.
