Posh Java will host a concert by popular blues artist, Randall “Big Daddy” Webster, featuring Chris Robbins on harmonica, this Saturday, March 31, 2012 at 8 pm.
Randall “Big Daddy” Webster has lived and breathed the Blues for decades. While soaking up the blues growing up in the shadow of the windy city of Chicago, Webster was deeply influenced by the blues during the 1960’s and 1970’s.
He later found himself swimming the undercurrent of deep river blues in Ohio and Mississippi waterways in the 1980’s. And for the last 25 plus years, he has been treading the backwoods swamp Florida blues.
Webster’s blues runs deep, his spirit held high and his influences authentic. A champion of America’s great indigenous music, “Big Daddy” is a pioneer blues artist who has created his own unique sound; a spicy gumbo of original home cooked blues, peppered with soul and and jazz. His 4-octave range revels in soaring vocals, and his pulsing rhythm guitar and beating foot, has created a fine blues brew enjoyed globally.
“Big Daddy” has opened for and shared the stage with B.B. King, Robert Cray, Bobby Rush, Keb Mo, Sam Lay, Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown, and many other blues legends. He’s opened for pop and rock legends such as the Doobie Brothers, Huey Lewis & the News, and Kool & The Gang. Ever evolving as a performing artist and original songwriter, “Big Daddy” continues to engage audiences across the globe with his energized music and passionate performances.
He has travelled across the world sharing his music on over 53 tours in 28 countries. “Big Daddy” is also a blues educator accredited by the Blues Foundation and the Florida Humanities Council. He has conducted Blues Seminars and Workshops at Florida State University, University College Cork Ireland, University of London Kingston (UK), and many other learning institutions. As a board member of the Big Bend Homeless Coalition, and founder of Blues for Humanity, Webster has helped raise awareness for humanitarian issues throughout the Florida Panhandle, Southeastern USA, and around the world.
