WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

David "Honeyboy" Edwards is one of the few remaining original practitioners of the acoustic Delta blues style. As a guitarist and country blues singer, David "Honeyboy" Edwards has been playing" traditional and unadulterated Mississippi Delta blues" since he left his home in Shaw, Mississippi, at the age of fourteen. The New York Times calls Edwards one of "the last authentic performers in blues idiom that developed in central Mississippi during the second and third decades of the century," and Rolling Stone is saying " ...he shows that you don't always need a band to move people's feet." For over 40 years, Marc Benno has been giving blues, rock, and pop an unmistakable Texas flavor. A singer/songwriter who plays guitar and piano, Benno is also a behind the scenes force, who has helped some of rock and blues greatest talents sound even better. The list of legends he's worked with includes The Doors, Eric Clapton, Lightnin' Hopkins, Bill Wyman, Georgie Fame, Rita Coolidge, Eddie Murphy, and Leon Russell - with whom he recorded two albums under the name 'Asylum Choir' in the late 60s.
