Dooley Wilson

AUGUST 1 | 5:00 DOORS | 6:30 SHOW (1 HOUR SET)
Ticketed event only. Weather permitting.


Dooley Wilson has spent his adult life of more than thirty years as a singer/guitarist

Bluesman of the Mississippi tradition, although he hails from - and presently resides in -

Northwest Ohio. In the early 'nineties, he co-founded the obscure but highly-regarded

"garage Blues" outfit, Henry & June, whose original song, "Goin' Back To Memphis" has

been covered by The White Stripes, The Soledad Brothers, Judah Bauer, and

numerous other industry luminaries. Wilson has toured the U.K., Ireland, France, Spain,

The Netherlands, and Portugal supporting The Soledad Brothers (2004-5), as well as

participating in session work with them at BBC studios London. Prior to this "legitimate"

period of work within the industry, Wilson spent a formative year (2001-2) as a street

busker in New Orleans, Louisiana. He has competed in the International Blues

Challenge in Memphis on two occasions, the first of which saw him ascend to the finals

of that event (2004). Today, he happily works and resides in South Toledo (Maumee),

living the bottleneck Blues and Gospel in his own inimitable fashion.
