Traditional Delta Blues with Johnny Long Performing at Fogartyville in Sarasota, FL

Traditional Delta Blues with Johnny Long Performing at Fogartyville in Sarasota, FL

Johnny Long found his trade in the traditional, pre-war acoustic blues sound. By adhering strictly to the rhythms and styles of the original country blues sounds, Johnny manages to establish an almost unmistakable link between such traditional 1920's and 30's Delta pieces and modern blues talent. Johnny Long brings original songs to the stage, but wrapped in a throwback to the foundation of blues. His album “Stand Your Ground” was nominated for acoustic album of the year at the 2017 Blues Music Awards. Long will play the Fogartyville Community Media and Arts Center on Saturday, November 10 at 8pm. Local blues musician Steve Arvey will open the show. Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 at the door.
