A Holiday Celebration of Sonny Boy Williamson

Arts and Culture: Join Adam Gussow and Greg Johnson in an end-of-semester celebration of the music of Sonny Boy Williamson II


Join Adam Gussow (Professor of English and Southern Studies) and Greg Johnson (Head of Special Collections, Blues Curator, and Professor) in an end-of-semester celebration of the music of Alex Miller, better known as Sonny Boy Williamson II. Johnson will discuss Williamson’s life and spin original 78s of some of his songs, while Gussow will offer a blues harmonica player's perspective by blowing some tunes and commenting on Williamson’s style and his celebrated place within the tradition.

This program highlights materials in Bring it on Home: An Exhibition of Sonny Boy Williamson II Materials from the William E. Donoghue Collection, currently on display in Archives and Special Collections through 9 December 2023.
