UCSB Arts & Lectures presents Blues at the Crossroads: The Robert Johnson Centennial Concert on Monday, January 31st, at 8pm in UCSB’s Campbell Hall.

Straight from the heart of the back country: Blues at the Crossroads picks up at the intersection where, as legend has it, delta blues musician Robert Johnson made a deal with a devil, giving up his soul to write the best blues songs ever heard. This A&L concert features blues musician David “Honeyboy” Edwards (who was playing with Johnson the night of his untimely death), rockers Big Head Todd & The Monsters, Howlin’ Wolf’s guitarist Hubert Sumlin, Cedric Burnside & Lightnin’ Malcolm, and more.
