Also look for Steve's new CD, Ham Hocks & Gravy, on Chezz-Tone Records; and for his previous release Outstanding Blues.
A consummate performer and a respected authority, musician/speaker Steve Cheseborough takes the acoustic country blues off of old 78s and brings it to life. He presents lecture/performances on early blues at museums, schools, festivals and riverboats, as well as straight music performances at clubs, restaurants and parties.
Singing and playing a shiny metal guitar, sometimes adding touches of harmonica or percussion, Cheseborough (pronounced CHEZZ-bro) re-creates the music of 1920-30s blues legends such as Blind Boy Fuller, Charley Patton, Robert Johnson and Bo Carter.
Besides playing the blues, Cheseborough writes for Living Blues, South, Delta and other magazines, and is the author of the acclaimed guidebook Blues Traveling: the Holy Sites of Delta Blues (University Press of Mississippi). He is a longtime Mississippi resident with a master's in Southern Studies and a knowledge of the blues from its beginnings to the present.
"Steve did such a good job capturing the emotions associated with Southern blues, I was tempted to ask him if the CD came with collard greens." - Acoustic Scene
