Rory Block At Crossroads

(PR) The spirit of Robert Johnson and the Delta Blues tradition come to life on Rory Block's debut Rykodisc release, The Lady and Mr. Johnson. The album, comprised entirely of Rory's heartfelt interpretations of Robert Johnson's music, is set for release on August 15th and may be the most compelling and important release in the celebrated blueswoman's distinguished career.

Block's approach to the blues of Robert Johnson is with the clear vision of an insider, one who, according to The New York Times, has "wrestled with ghosts, shadows and legends." An expert slide guitarist and a masterful singer, Rory Block's unmatched understanding of the complexity and form of Robert Johnson's music has gained her the resounding support and encouragement of the Johnson family and the Robert Johnson Blues Foundation.
