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. For
