About this Event

One of the most authentic and original proponents of the hypnotic, spontaneous Mississippi Hill Country Blues, guitarist R.L. Boyce was a protégé of R.L. Burnside and Mississippi Fred McDowell.

Once a drummer for Jessie Mae Hemphill and in the fife-and-drum bands of his uncle Otha Turner, Boyce turned to the guitar at age 22 and developed his craft slowly through countless gigs at juke joints and house parties. He was past 50 when he cut his first album, and his second album “Roll and Tumble,” recorded primarily in Boyce’s own front yard, was one of the five finalists for the Grammy award for ‘Best Traditional Blues Album’ in 2018. His community picnics and front-porch performances in the tiny rural town of Como are the stuff of legend.

For his debut Houston performance, he’s joined by his regular performing partner Lightnin’ Malcolm.
