Albert "Sunnyland Slim" Luandrew was an American blues pianist who was born in the Mississippi Delta and later moved to Chicago. Chicago's broadcaster and writer, Studs Terkel, said Sunnyland Slim was "a living piece of our folk history, gallantly and eloquently carrying on in the old tradition." His stage name came from a song he composed about the Sunnyland train that ran between Memphis and St. Louis.
