Scotty Bradbury

Singer-songwriter - Harp - Band Leader

Harpist/Vocalist Scott Bradbury (Badboy Scotty) learned to play blues harmonica on the streets of Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood, but his musical education took a great leap forward when, on the advice of a fellow street busker he began to listen to records by blues legends Little Walter and Jimmy Reed.  Eventually he played around the globe as a member of the Jimmy Rogers Band, and The Sam Lay Blues Revue.
