ANTHONY "BIG A" SHERROD
TRADITIONAL BLUES ALBUM: RIGHT ON TIME (2022 Remastered)
International Touring Artist and multi-instrumentalist Anthony "Big A" Sherrod personifies the authentic delta blues legacy that is still heard today in his native Clarksdale, Mississippi. Introduced to music in the church, his father, E.J. Johnson, was a gospel singer that performed with The Golden Stars. By the age of 6, he began playing and hasn't stopped. As a student of the after-school program at the Delta Blues Museum, Sherrod studied with Johnnie Billington. As the godson of Big Jack Johnson, he learned all facets of his craft at the feet of a master. He has held standing gigs at all of the iconic Clarksdale venues, including Sarah's Kitchen, Red's Lounge and Ground Zero in addition to countless other performances throughout the region and beyond. Sherrod wrote the title track and appeared in the 2012 documentary, We Juke Up In Here, an inside look at what little still remains of the juke joint culture of the south.
