Robert Johnson Centennial

The library is closed this week, but we would be remiss if we didn't mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of bluesman Robert Johnson. Lots of musicians are referred to as "legendary," but Johnson really does come with a legend, that he sold his soul to the devil at the crossroads in exchange for his musical talent.

NPR reports on the man and the myth. Enjoy it now, then return to the library when we reopen Monday, May 16 to explore his music at the library.
