Robert Cotton music is a tasty mix of Chicago Style and Texas Blues…….., the recipe for good time blues! He covers material from the King of the Blues, Mr. B.B.

Yes indeed…..the fabulous vocalist, guitarist and harmonicaplayer Robert Cotton who allways bring a show of true entertainment and a memorable evening for the entire audience. Robert has been singing the Blues with various bands, and doing solo gigs since.…. well, like forever man. Originally born and raised in Chicago Illinois, USA. spending hours hanging around clubs like Buddy Guys Legens and the Kingston Mines as an underaged teenager. Club managers would sometimes turn their head and allow Robert to sit in a dark corner and watch… listen… learn… from the blues greatest players. From solo traditional Blues performances played the way the originals were played on a resonator guitar, to the jumping rock’n electric blues of today, if its Blues, Robert is at home. Emotion, and soulful passion, are the foundation for Robert’s unique style. You just got to hear it…!
