I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Going Up - Ironing Board Sam

Music Maker is happy to present our first release from artist Ironing Board Sam. Going Up is a product of more than 55 years of blues experience; the 13-track album features Sam's return to his early solo piano and vocal roots.

Ironing Board Sam is a charismatic singer, songwriter and piano player and a true original in blues music. Sam earned his nickname in the late 1950s after inventing his "button board," a homemade and portable keyboard mounted on an ironing board. After showcasing his button board in Memphis, Sam was dubbed Ironing Board Sam for his unique invention.
