Blues Master

March 5, 2010

Eighty-one-year-old singer and guitarist Texas Johnny Brown gives a lesson in the blues at the third Costa Rica Blues Fest, which took place Feb. 27 at Club Cubano in Guachipelín de Escazú, west of San José. The 60-year blues veteran’s career started in 1948. “(Things) may not be the same way they were back in those days, but melancholy is melancholy. It remains the same,” he told The Tico Times at the festival. “So I try to do my blues where I make everybody understand, the young and the old.” See more photos online at www.ticotimes.net/photoreports
