Robert Lockwood Jr. 102nd Birthday Celebration Featuring the Lockwood All-Stars and More 

When: Sun., March 26, 7:30 p.m. 2017
Price: free
For the annual birthday celebration of Robert Lockwood Jr.’s legacy, an all-star lineup is gathering at the Beachland to honor the blues legend’s legacy. With Robert "Red Top" Young, DC Carnes, Gus Hawkins, Benny Mostella, Richard Smith and Vernondo Parker in tow, you’ve got a dynamic set of Midwest masters onstage tonight. Lockwood, who died in 2006, was a Cleveland blues icon and the only guitarist known to have studied under Robert Johnson (who lived with Lockwood’s mother in the 1920s and 30s in Arksanas). On top of the All Stars, the bill also presents performance by the Wallace Coleman Group, the Schwartz Brothers, the Vernon Jones Blues Cartel, the Hollywood Slim Band, Pete & Nolan Cavano and Bob Frank.
