Robert Lockwood Jr. 99th Birthday Celebration 

When: Sun., March 30, 8 p.m. 2014
Legendary Delta blues guitarist Robert Lockwood Jr. was a Cleveland institution. As such, he served as the great nucleus around which our region’s blues scene developed for many years. His ties to the granddaddy of the Delta himself, Robert Johnson, only polished the mythos already cemented by his other-worldly playing. Tonight, we meet once again to celebrate his life and legacy — and to vault the blues to its prominent place in Cleveland history. Artists on the bill include the Schwartz Brothers, Travis “Moonchild” Haddix, Wallace Coleman, Crazy Marvin Braxton, Vernon Jones, Pete Cavano, Robert Kidney, Bob Frank, Mike Balas and, as the evening’s house band, the Robert Lockwood Jr. All-Stars (Robert “Red Top” Young, D.C. Carnes, Richard Smith, Jimmy “Gator” Hoare, Gus Hawkins, Benny Mostella and Rob Williams). (Sandy)
