Albert Luandrew (1906-1995) was a blues piano player who performed under the stage name Sunnyland Slim.
He was born in Vance, Mississippi, moved to Memphis, Tennessee circa 1925 and then moved to Chicago where he became a leading blues musician, playing with musicians like Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon, Robert Lockwood Jr., Little Walter.
Sunnyland Slim and Howlin’ Wolf were both Masons. We are currently researching their lodge affiliations.
