Bobby Rush's Louisiana roots, Chicago blues scene credentials, and Mississippi home base are geographic evidence of a lifetime of music making. Bobby Rush—it’s pronounced as one three-syllable name—calls his music “folk funk,” an apt description for a blend that’s both decidedly modern and deeply rooted in tradition.

Bobby Rush's SXSW Interview will be conducted by Dr. Ike, producer of the acclaimed Ponderosa Stomp.
