Biography

Michael "Shrimpdaddy" Reid
With a pseudonym like “Shrimp Daddy” one conjures images of the fishing fleet of Louisiana’s’ “Bayou Delcambre,” Cajun accents, Zydeco music, washboards, accordions & fiddles. Not to be! …. His deep gravelly vocals, accompanied by the mesmerizing sound of his harmonica, supported by his hard playing band “The Sharpshooters” whisks you to the juke joints of Mississippi as well as the hard edge blues clubs of Chicago. The music of the “Walters”, Willie Dixon, Howlin Wolf & Muddy Waters augmented with the unforgettable sound of Butterfield is his forte!
Transplanted from “La Belle Province” this native Montrealer now makes Toronto his home. It was there he was introduced to & captivated by the sultry sound produced by the blues harmonica. Wasting little time he secured as many tapes & cds containing “blues harp” and the masters as he could, haunted the local clubs & hounded the established players for advice & harmonica lessons which they graciously provided. Practicing diligently his hard work shows and he’s now a welcome addition on stage by the very artists he once stood in awe of.
