Bridging the Gap: Bobby Rush with special guest Jontavious Willis
January 21 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$20 – $40
Thanks to Bobby Rush’s long memory and quick wit, he’s hailed as one of the blues’ best storytellers, which shines through during his live shows. The two-time, Grammy-winning legend, and Blues Hall of Famer, incorporates humor, prolific guitar, and harmonica playing into his stunning performances.
Pair this icon with 26-year-old UFPA favorite, Jontavious Willis, and you’ll have the ultimate blues experience. Willis was nominated for a Grammy in 2020, thanks to his latest album, Spectacular Class. He’s a fingerpicker, flat-picker, and slide player who masterfully plays guitar, harmonica, banjo, and cigar box. Expect a lot of foot tapping the entire show!
Expected runtime: 40 minute set with Jontavious Willis and 75 minute set with Bobby Rush.
