Johnny Burgin (pictured above) is an internationally-touring Blues guitarist and Delmark Records recording artist.

Burgin’s efforts have led to collaborations with Blues legends Charlie Musselwhite and Chicago’s Billy Boy Arnold, as well as to a compilation of the underground Japanese blues scene with the No Border Blues album. After years of playing in Chicago, Burgin struck out to the West Coast and points beyond in 2016. Rick Kogan of The Chicago Tribune stated, “there are few more passionate practitioners of this style.”
