He has performed or recorded with dozens of artists, including Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf, and wrote the soundtrack for the 1970 Dustin Hoffman film, ‘Little Big Man.’
Hammond was the Blues Music Award winner for Acoustic Artist of the Year in 2011, the same year he was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame. In 2012, Hammond was inducted into the New York Blues Hall of Fame.
