Fairfield Theatre Company in Fairfield, Connecticut is proud to present on StageOne, a landmark event: In honor of Delta Blues giant Robert Johnson, we have gathered the few remaining original practitioners of acoustic Delta blues to perform Saturday, September 16th, 2006.

91-year-old David “Honeyboy" Edwards, who has played traditional and unadulterated Mississippi Delta blues since he left his home in Shaw, Mississippi, at the age of fourteen. Robert Lockwood Jr, born in 1915 in Turkey Scratch, Arkansas, and Steven “Blindlemon" McLean, all join local blues favorite and keeper of the Robert Johnson flame, Rocky Lawrence.

Join us for what promises to be an unforgettable night in the history of the blues.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
