For more than 25 years, Kevin Burt has captivated audiences across the Midwest, dispelling the misconception that true blues has no roots in Iowa. Burt became a worldwide sensation when he won the 2018 Memphis International Blues Challenge. A self-taught multi-instrumentalist (voice, harmonica, and guitar), Burt’s smooth, warm vocals and infectious humor resonate with listeners of all ages. His soul-inspired performances have drawn comparisons to acclaimed artists like Bill Withers and Aaron Neville, and his ability to build a deep connection with his audience has been likened to the legendary B.B. King.
