Son Roberts -Gary 17

Son Roberts -Gary 17


Blues songwriter, singer and harpman Son Roberts hasn’t performed much over the past couple of years that we know of, which is a shame given his undeniable talent and highly skilled backing band.

But tonight he’s got himself a great showcase stage on which to share his gut-wrenching story songs inspired by (and in some cases written in) the Delta Blues states during visits there. He’s at Monarch’s Pub in the Eaton Chelsea Hotel downtown starting at 8 p.m. and there’s no cover.
