More than 75 years after his mysterious death Robert Johnson continues to make blues top 10 lists around the world and his most famous tunes ‘Sweet Home Chicago’, ‘Crossroads Blues’ have remained standards of every blues band in the world.
This March a group of Sydney’s finest blues artists: Spencer Jones, Clayton Doley (The Hands, Jimmy Barnes), Adam Pringle, Cass Eager, Johnny Cass, Ben Edwards and George Brugmans get together to remember the great work of Robert Johnson, the man Eric Clapton called “the most important blues singer that ever lived.”
This tribute has the endorsement of The Robert Johnson Foundation – an organisation dedicated to preserving the music and memory of Robert Johnson through the provision of art education, competitions and scholarships. A guitar signed by Robert Johnson’s son Claude will be raffled off in May, with all proceeds going to the foundation. Tickets are available at the shows.
This will be a night not to be missed by lovers of acoustic blues, great guitar playing and an old-fashioned good time.
