    Luther "Guitar Jr." Johnson & The Magic Rockers

    Presented by at Shalin Liu Performance Center

    May 20, 2011



    Luther "Guitar Junior" Johnson has emerged as the bona fide leader of the West Side guitar style with his unique blend of blues, soul and funk. His incredible guitar riffs and plaintive vocals leave no doubt that Johnson is a blues master at the top of his game.
    After serving his apprenticeship with Muddy Waters(he is one of the last direct links!) and Magic Sam, Luther has developed his own signature style characterized by a strong rhythmic component and deeply moving vocal phrasings.

    "Guitar Junior" earned his moniker by performing a blistering blend of single string playing on the electric guitar, augmented by powerful chordal accompaniment. Magic Sam immediately signed him upon hearing the teenage "Little Junior" sing Sam Cooke’s "Somebody Have Mercy" at a club on Chicago's West Side in the early '60s.
