JIMMY BURNS @ Rosa’s Lounge, Chicago

Jimmy Burns Band

Jimmy Burns, Born in 1943 near the Delta town of Dublin, Mississippi, embodies that increasingly rare combination of blues roots deep enough to tap into ‘the real thing’, while still possessing the youth and vitality to present his music with plenty of life and real excitement. He honed his vocal skills singing with vocal groups in the ’50s, and over the years has perfected an appealingly melodic, vocal-inflected contemporary guitar style to complement the down-home picking he’d learned in his youth.

Jimmy Burns Band

Born in Mississippi in 1943, Jimmy Burns is a contemporary bluesman who combines his Delta roots with R&B and soul for a sound uniquely his own. Burns moved to Chicago at age 12 and went on to contribute to both gospel and folk around town. With a melodic guitar style, soulful vocals, and expressive lyrics, Burns is a charismatic stage performer. After a long break from performing to raise a family, Jimmy Burns’s 1996 debut album went on to win “Best Blues Record of the Year” from the National Association of Independent Record Distributors. Burns has since contributed to his renowned brother Detroit bluesman Eddie Burns’s albums and continues to please audiences around the globe. His bluesy performance of the Ben E. King classic “Stand By Me” is a crowd favorite.10/09/2021 9:00 PM
