Robert "Junior" Lockwood
BiographyIn addition to being a stunning guitarist, Lockwood has an integral place in blues history; he learned the trade from the legendary Robert Johnson. Though he slips into gritty acoustic fingerpicking like his mentor, Lockwood is a master of many aspects of the guitar, having been one of the first to pick up an electric, and later moving on to the twelve-string. The talents he picked up from Johnson and Sonny Boy Williamson made Lockwood quite a teacher himself -- he became a strong influence on Muddy Waters and B.B. King, among others. His voice developed into a strong, commanding presence over the years, complementing his electric and acoustic Delta Blues mastery. His work spans the 20th century, and reflects the many changes the blues have gone through.
