Through music and storytelling, audiences learn about prominent Blues artists such as Muddy Waters, the "father of modern Chicago Blues," Son House, the famous Delta Blues singer and slide guitarist, and Robert Johnson, the Mississippi Delta Blues musician whose mysterious life and death are shrouded in legend. The show also highlights other equally talented musicians such as Charley Patton, considered by many to be the "Father of the Delta Blues," Chicago musician, Willie Dixon who wrote or co-wrote over 500 songs and was called the "poet laureate of the blues," and Texas-born Lightnin' Hopkins, who ranked #71 on the list of 100 greatest guitar players by Rolling Stone magazine. These are a sampling of the artists featured in this show.
