Edwin Holt’s Red Clay Roadhouse Band

Edwin Holt is an East Texas native who became immersed in the blues at 18 after attending a blues festival in Mississippi and who has been opening for legends like Bobby "Blue" Bland and Johnnie Taylor. He started out 20 years ago performing in south Dallas clubs and juke joints. As his popularity in R&B circles grew, he and his 12-piece band headlined festivals and shared the stage with such greats as the legendary B.B. King and Al Green. Holt still sings the brand of blues that sounds as if it oozed from the depths of the Mississippi Delta but his big band of yesteryear has morphed into the much smaller Edwin Holt’s Red Clay Roadhouse Band. If you like R&B, you are going to love this show. Be there, don’t be square
