Fruteland Jackson
 
Mississippi-raised acoustic guitarist/educator studied music in Chicago at Columbia College and Roosevelt University, and has written a song about the 1992 Loop flood. A Delta-style revivalist, Jackson will be honoring the legacy of one of his favorites, Robert Johnson, on the Front Porch Stage of the 1999 Chicago Blues Festival. He combines the usual percussive Delta guitar style with delicate acoustic finger-picking, and is pretty successful at bringing the early blues alive for a modern audience.
