Born in Mississippi in 1943, Jimmy Burns is a contemporary bluesman who combines his Delta roots with R&B and soul for a sound uniquely his own. Burns moved to Chicago at age 12 and went on to contribute to both gospel and folk around town. With a melodic guitar style, soulful vocals, and expressive lyrics, Burns is a charismatic stage performer. After a long break from performing to raise a family, Jimmy Burns’s 1996 debut album went on to win “Best Blues Record of the Year” from the National Association of Independent Record Distributors. Burns has since contributed to his renowned brother Detroit bluesman Eddie Burns’s albums and continues to please audiences around the globe. His bluesy performance of the Ben E. King classic “Stand By Me” is a crowd favorite.
