Tail Dragger + The Fossen & Struijk Band
Description / biography
Tail Dragger (James Yancy Jones) was born on September 30, 1940 in Altheimer, Arkansas. In the 60s he moved to Chicago. There he followed his hero Howlin 'Wolf along the many blues clubs in Chicago. Later, as 'The Wolf' took a break, he was sometimes allowed to sing a few songs.
Howlin 'Wolf also gave him the name "Tail Dragger" and encouraged him to start his own band and show, which he did. Since the 70s, Tail Dragger is a respected blues singer who has always been very loyal to the classic Chicago Blues style. Now he is one of the last real Chicago Blues legends. He has really done it all and absolutely is The Real Deal!
When on tour in Europe, Tail Dragger is accompanied by the Fossen & Struijk Band.
