In September, we had the honor of hosting Kevin Burt as a Farm Session artist. After his performance, he was kind enough to sit down with us for a few moments to discuss his start in the Iowa City music scene, his efforts toward building community as an Iowa blues artist, and being a good neighbor in times of difficulty.
For more than 25 years Kevin Burt has been electrifying audiences throughout the Midwest dispelling the myth that true blues has no roots in Iowa. His soul-inspired presentation is unique which consistently get him compared to a range of artists like Bill Withers and Aaron Neville, with the ability to build an audience rapport that has been compared to B.B. King.
