StageOne welcomes back 2010 Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award recipient Blues Hall of Fame inductee and 2007 Grammy Award winner Honey Boy Edwards. Honey Boy Edwards will be joined by supporting act Rocky Lawrence.

"Edwards is among the last authentic performers in the blues...Through him, an entire body of great American music lives on... -New York Times

Rocky Lawrence is a blues musician who has the ability to bring an audience into the Delta and relive the early days of Mississippi Blues. Learning his craft straight from the legendary players who helped create the Blues, Lawrence has taken his talent all over the world. You'd swear he walked the dusty back roads with Robert Johnson.

Duke Robillard Band: 2010 GRAMMY Nomineee for Best Traditional Blues Album for Stomp! The Blues Tonight (2nd nomination in 3 years in this category)

The legendary B.B. King says of him "Duke's one of the great players."

Johnny A. has one of the most eloquent voices in modern music-and he doesn't sing a note. Instead, he channels joy, love, humor, sadness...every aspect of the human experience, through his guitar. "Devotion to melodies, tight dynamics and succulent tones perfectly temper Johnny's balance of fire and ice."- Ted Drozdowski, Guitar World

Too bad I'm not closer... Honeyboy is perhaps the LAST Delta bluesman who lived and performed contemporaneously with Son House, Charlie Patton and many others who are long since gone.

If anyone from the 'Cat is going, cheer loud for me.

Cheers,

FG

I believe Honeyboy Edwards is close to 95 years old. I saw him a few years ago - he did two shows with a shot and a beer in between. Yes, he ran with just about everyone and was with Robert Johnson when he was poisoned. I highly recommend Honeyboy's book - The World Don't Owe Me Nothing. It's available at Amazon.

Glad I had the opportunity to see him in concert a year or so before he passed.

David "Honeyboy" Edwards is sorely missed by me, along with Robert Lockwood Jr. and my "Daddy" Hubert Sumlin whom I all got to live with, know and play with. I don't see anybody coming behind them at this point except for myself and maybe a handful of other's. Please keep the "Real" blues alive.
