Blues at the Crossroads
Concerts is a show commemorating the 100th birthday of blues legend Robert Johnson that features Big Head Todd & The Monsters, David “Honeyboy” Edwards, Hubert Sumlin and Cedric Burnside & Lightnin’ Malcom.
Performances include solo and musical collaborations between the artists.
Of the musicians honoring Johnson, David “Honeyboy” Edwards has a direct link back to the blues master, having witnessed Johnson’s last public performance.
Legend has it that Johnson, whose best known songs include “Sweet Home Chicago,” was a middling guitarist until he reportedly met up with Satan himself at a crossroads, with Ol’ Scratch bestowing upon the young musician the ability to play blues guitar like no one had ever played it before.
