Robert Johnson Centennial Concert
Big Head Todd & The Monsters
David “Honeyboy” Edwards

The Blues, straight from the heart of the back country. With Bluesman David “Honeyboy” Edwards on board, Blues At The Crossroads has a direct connection back to the legend, as Edwards was playing with Robert Johnson the night he died.
The evening picks up the thread of Johnson’s legacy in Mississippi, at the junction of US Highways 61 & 49. The very crossroads where, as legend has it, Robert Johnson’s burning desire pushed him to make his deal with the devil—giving up his soul to write the baddest-ass blues the world had ever heard.
Listen to unreleased tracks from the upcoming album Blues at the Crossroad: 100 Years of Robert Johnson
