YouTube

Since yesterday I’ve had numerous inquiries concerning final arrangements  for Big Walter Smith, longtime Blues Fest performer, who died yesterday at the age 82. Get complete details after the jump if you would like to pay your respects.

The family has set a memorial service for Aug. 5, 4-7 p.m., at Washburn-McReavy Funeral Chapel, 5125 W. Broadway Av., Crystal.

Here is one of Big Walter’s final videos, shot on his 80th birthday, it’s him singing ‘Sweet Home Chicago’ live at Schuller’s Blues Extravaganza in Minneapolis.
