Ted Williams, aka Floyd Lee, Jr., leader of Delta Blues, was born in Lamar, Mississippi, and learned the blues at an early age from his father, Guitar Floyd. Later in life, Ted toured with Jimmy Reed, Wilson Pickett, and Bo Diddley in the 50s and 60s. Ted's dedication to the "old style" blues of the Mississippi Delta, coupled with his own songwriting has been an enlivening influence on the blues tradition and has proven enormously popular. His band has performed at Moscow's first blues festival, and played gigs from Seoul to Toulouse, Japan to famed Clarksdale Mississippi Blues Festival and all over New York. Clara, a Jamaican singer with a sweet voice, often joins Ted during performances and creates the perfect harmony to balance Ted's "gritty" style. Also eager to join in song, numerous Japanese musicians gather around Ted to experience the "real deal" blues. Ted has released various recordings including "Mean Blues", and "Ain't Doin Nothin Wrong". Ted was featured in a major documentary on his life, which opened in the fall of 2006.
