Roots, Rock, Rebellion. Grammy-award winning artist Alvin Youngblood Hart returns home to Memphis for a special night in The Green Room at Crosstown Arts.
Alvin is the cosmic American love child of Howlin Wolf and Link Wray. Respected around the world as a “musician’s musician,” Alvin Youngblood Hart’s praises have been sung by everyone from Bob Dylan to guitar gods Eric Clapton & Mick Taylor.
