The man who would become a Delta Blues Legend, was born June 28, 1915 in Shaw, Mississippi. David Honeyboy Edwards was one of the last living links to Delta Blues Music that included other legends like Tommy Johnson, Robert Johnson, Son House, Lightin' Hopkins and Charlie Patton.
David Honeyboy Edwards passed away on August 29, 2011 at his home in Chicago, Illinois. You can find out more about Mr. Edwards at his website.
I had the privilege of seeing Mr. Edwards play a number of times. Those shows are documented in these photographs.
I had the immense pleasure of spending time with Mr. Edwards after he performed at Blues Masters at the Crossroads.
