En av de mest meriterade och prisade blues/soulartister som Umeå Blues kunnat presentera på sin scen kommer till oss den 23 maj, JOHNNY RAWLS.
Johnny Rawls was born in Columbia, Mississippi in 1951 and raised in Purvis and Gulfport, Mississippi. He acquired an early interest in music when hearing his grandfather play the blues guitar one Christmas morning.
He began playing professionally while still in high school with such stars as ZZ Hill, Little Johnny Taylor, Joe Tex and the Sweet Inspirations.
