Born Robert Leroy Johnson, the legendary guitarist played many blues styles. His musical mastery birthed a Faustian-style myth that still shrouds the Mississippi bluesman to this day and he’s beloved for his delta blues songwriting, singing, and guitar-playing. Eric Clapton called Johnson the most important blues singer that ever lived, and Robert Johnson’s contributions to the foundations of rock music earned him an induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame during the organization’s inaugural ceremony. Robert Johnson remains an influential force and figure among emerging guitarists and aficionados of blues.

Come join Kansas City area’s great blues musicians —Betse & Clarke, Dan Bliss, Noah Davis, Scotch Hollow, Pat Nichols— and celebrate the birthday of iconic blues musician Robert Johnson. Ticket prices are $20 and proceeds benefit KKFI 90.1FM. Additional details can be found at www.kkfi.org/events.
