(Gibson) Matthew Davidson, a 13-year-old blues and rock guitarist, has won the 2011 Robert Johnson New Generation Award. The Shreveport Times reported that Davidson, who is from Shreveport, Louisiana, was chosen from among 25 artists by the Robert Johnson Blues Foundation.

As the winner, the guitarist and singer was given a Gibson Robert Johnson L-1 guitar, along with the opportunity to perform at a future foundation event.

"His style was kind of advanced for his age," said Steven Johnson, Robert's grandson and vice president of the foundation. "It was crisp; it was professional. His style with that electric guitar was amazing." more on this story
