Lecture~Concert Series: Little Milton here for Delta Blues
Mississippi bluesman Little Milton will perform at Delta Blues Symposium XI. The concert begins at 8 p.m. Thursday in the auditorium of the new Student Union. Known as an excellent all-around electric bluesman, Milton has often been compared to B.B. King — as well as Bobby "Blue" Bland — for the way his particular style combines soul, blues, and R&B, a combination that helped him become one of the biggest-selling bluesmen of the 1960s.Since his 1953 debut on Sun Records, Milton has maintained a active recording career.
