Born in 1915 in Shaw, Mississippi, David "Honeyboy" Edwards is one of the few remaining bluesman from the golden era of the blues of the 1930s. Emerging from the Mississippi delta, Honeyboy played with legends Charlie Patton, Big Joe Williams, Tommy Johnson, Big Walter Horton, Howling Wolf, Sonny Boy Williamson II, and Little Walter to name a few. He also played with the mythical bluesman Robert Johnson and was there when Johnson was poisoned by a jealous bar owner in 1938. Based in Chicago, at age 89 Honeyboy continues to tour regularly with his manager and harmonica player Michael Frank. He is seen here performing at a Phoenix, AZ blues club called the Rhythm Room.
