Heritage Blues Orchestra

Listen to their debut album, or witness a live performance by the Heritage Blues Orchestra and you'll recognize this group as something breathtakingly new even as they honor old African-American musical traditions. How can something so deeply rooted in the past still seem so adventurous-even audacious?

Heritage Blues Orchestra delivers by serving up a compelling new take on America's Blues legacy. This utterly contemporary group is digging into innovative musical territory and making a distinct contribution to the African-American musical canvas.

The band features Bill Sims Jr., on vocals and guitar, his daughter Chaney Sims on vocals, and Junior Mack on vocals and on both electric and slide guitars.
