Description: A native of New Jersey, self-taught blues musician Junior Mack has been playing guitar since the age of nine. An opportunity to play for the late Pops Staples early in his career, and the encouraging reaction from both Pops and Mavis Staples, was the first in a chain of events that drove him to present his interpretation of the blues to a wider audience. Since then, Mack has developed the stage presence of a seasoned performer, lulling, mesmerizing, and reeling the audience into a groove all his own. His soulful interpretation of the blues never fails to captivate.
