About Big Head Blues Club

Big Head Blues Club is essentially Big Head Todd & the Monsters augmented with Cedric Burnside (grandson of blues great R.L. Burnside), guitarist Lightnin’ Malcolm, and singer Ruthie Foster, plus a rotating cast of blues legends who have included B.B. King, David Honeyboy Edwards, Hubert Sumlin, and Charlie Musselwhite. As a conglomerate, Big Head Blues Club grew out of the Blues at the Crossroads tour honoring country bluesman Robert Johnson's 100th birthday, and the assembled and expanded group went into the legendary Ardent Studios in Memphis with producer Chris Goldsmith to record an album of songs associated with Johnson, who only ever recorded 29 songs, all during the years 1936 and 1937. The result, 100 Years of Robert Johnson, appeared in 2011 from Ryko/Big Records. ~ Steve Leggett
