Celebrate "The King of the Delta Blues" at Delta Blues Museum

Celebrate Robert Johnson Month

Robert Johnson (b. May 8 1911 - d. August 15, 1938) left a legacy of 29 recorded tracks that display an unparalleled artistry in his guitar playing, singing, and original songwriting. His music both defines the essence of Delta blues style and reveals a singular, visionary approach to that tradition. At one time little-known beyond his recordings, a legend began that Johnson had "sold his soul to the devil" at a country crossroads to play and sing so magically. Now, new biographies and memoirs by family members have painted a complete picture of Johnson's life and times.

See our Gift Shop for these items, plus Robert Johnson CDs, posters, mugs, Crossroads signs, and a limited edition of promotional tee shirts that feature a rare photograph of the blues master. And see our exclusive visual biography, "Follow Robert Johnson," at the Explore & Learn section of the Museum's website.
