Tigertail continues its 30th Anniversary Season with David “Honeyboy” Edwards on February 20th, 2010 at the Colony Theatre.
Born in 1915, Honeyboy is one of the last links to Robert Johnson, and one of the last original acoustic Delta blues players still performing. He is a living legend, and his story is truly part of history. He is the real deal. Edwards will receive a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award on January 30th, 2010.
Honeyboy’s life is intertwined with almost every major blues legend, including, Charlie Patton, Big Joe Williams, Rice “Sonny Boy Williamson” Miller, Howlin’ Wolf, Peetie Wheatstraw, Sunnyland Slim, Lightnin’ Hopkins, Big Walter, Little Walter, Magic Sam, Muddy Waters, and many others. Among his many honors, David “Honeyboy” Edwards has been inducted in the Blues Hall of Fame, received a Grammy and a prestigious NEA National Heritage Fellowship award.
