Will Shade

Real Name:William Shade, Jr.
Profile:

Memphis blues singer and musician (guitar, harmonica), born February 5, 1898 in Memphis, Tenn., died September 18, 1966 in the same town.
Shade is best known for his leadership of the Memphis Jug Band. He was commonly called "Son Brimmer", a nickname from his grandmother Annie Brimmer (son is short for grandson). The name apparently stuck when other members of the band noticed that the sun bothered him and he used the brim of a hat to shade his eyes.
