Paul Vaughn Butterfield was a major factor in the integration of blues music in the United States. White blues bands were playing electric “Chicago-style blues” in England, but Butterfield’s band brought the style home. Butterfield honed his skills on the harmonica in Chicago blues clubs before he achieved a greater following. Along the way, he played with musical greats such as Bob Dylan. Butterfield appeared in the classic concert film of The Band’s last show, The Last Waltz.
