iHeartFaces Week #11 – Adults (No Flash!)

DaGoddess @ 03:37

Now it’s time for an entry in the adult category for the iHeartFaces contest.

Henry Gray is a bit of a legend in New Orleans and Chicago. He was born in Louisiana but he settled in Chicago after WWII. Once there, he played for bluesman Howlin’ Wolf, among others. At 84, he’s still got the chops for some serious boogie woogie. He’s seriously sweet, too. (But that’ll be our secret, okay?) Again, no flash for this one, unless you count the flashing fingers across the 88s.

Bluesman Henry Gray

Whew! Three posts in one day. Will wonders never cease?!

  1. I loved this photo — I really like how his hands are blurred, but his face is still crisp. It just captures the moment of being a live performance.

  3. I have others that I could have posted, but I like Henry and I wanted more people to get curious about him.
