Steve Cheseborough

Steve Cheseborough is a cult figure among aficionados of 1920s-30s-style blues. His chilling re-creations of Bo Carter, Robert Johnson, Blind Lemon Jefferson and other early blues masters turn any setting into a jook joint for the night.
Cheseborough also is a respected authority on the blues, as author of the acclaimed guidebook Blues Traveling: the Holy Sites of Delta Blues, and a contributor to Living Blues, Acoustic Guitar and other publications. He appeared in the documentary Last of the Mississippi Jukes, also featuring Morgan Freeman and Chris Thomas King, and was host and musical director of Mississippi Public Broadcastings nationally distributed Blues Breaks. He holds a master's in Southern Studies from the University of Mississippi, and has lectured on blues topics at academic conferences. He has taught at Port Townsend Country Blues Workshop and Puget Sound Guitar Workshop, as well as at colleges and festivals. His performances on riverboats and at festivals, museums, schools, nightclubs, jook joints and private events combine stories, history and live performance.

Sure, Ken Burns is good at research. But can he play guitar? Burns has made documentaries about jazz, but can he sing? Steve Cheseborough can, and does, in one-man shows that bring the Delta blues to life.  Oregon Coast Today
