Sam Carr’s Delta Jukes


Bluesman Sam Carr, one of the premiere blues drummers of the modern era, passed away on Monday, September 21, 2009 after battling health problems over the past few years.

Carr was a seasoned session player as well, his imaginative drumming adding to recordings by Delta and Mississippi Hill Country artists like Asie Payton, Jimmy "Duck" Holmes, T-Model Ford, and Robert "Bilbo" Walker. Carr also performed on Buddy Guy's award-winning Sweet Tea album, which was recorded in Mississippi. As a bandleader, the drummer fronted Sam Carr's Delta Jukes, releasing three albums, the most recent being 2007's Let The Good Times Roll.

There are not many videos of Sam available - but here are a couple
