The greatest young torchbearer of blues music in America is Georgia’s own Jontavious Willis. The great Taj Mahal says of him, “Jontavious Willis. That’s my Wonderboy, the Wunderkind. He’s a great new voice of the 21st century in the acoustic blues.”
The Center for Cultural Vibrancy has been working with Jontavious for some time as part of our World Culture in Context program. While that program operates primarily virtually, we are bringing Jontavious to the Baltimore region to work in person with middle and high school students on February 15, 16, and 17, 2023.
We figure, while we have him here, we should do a show, right? So, he will be headlining at Creative Alliance on Friday, February 17. Trust us, you don’t want to miss this one. For a taste, check out this sweet little set below from New York’s City Winery:
