It's "Robert Johnson Month" at Delta Blues Museum

Robert Johnson, king of the Delta Blues singers.

Celebrate an original

Robert Johnson was born in Hazlehurst, Mississippi, on or about May 8, 1911. Music scholars may disagree as to the particulars of Robert's life, but one fact is undisputed: Robert Johnson's music looms large on the American landscape, continuing to influence "millions beyond his time." See Robert's full story in the "Explore & Learn: Follow Robert Johnson" section of our website, and don't miss the section "Robert Johnson's Last Ramble".

May is Robert Johnson Month at Delta Blues Museum in Clarksdale. Come see our exhibits and shop in our Gift Shop, filled with many souvenirs of this blues legend's life and music.
