It’s “Stomp,” 7:30 p.m. Jan. 16 and 17, State Theatre for the Arts, Easton.

Junior Watson at Godfrey’s: married to the blues

Tuesday, January 14, 2020 by DAVE HOWELL in Focus

He may not be a household name, but he is revered by blues guitarists.

He recently received his fourth Blues Award nomination for Guitar Instrumentalist.

He has recorded with a long list of blues greats, and was a member of the iconic group Canned Heat for 10 years.

And he is fun to watch and listen to.

He is Junior Watson, in concert, 7:30 p.m. Jan. 16, Godfrey Daniels, Bethlehem, where he appeared one year ago.

Watson plays effortlessly, without high volume or flash, with talent born from an encyclopedic knowledge of the blues.
