Sherman Robertson biography



Sherman Robertson (born October 27, 1948, Breaux Bridge, Louisiana, United States) Biography Robertson was born in Louisiana and raised in Houston, Texas. In 1982, Clifton Chenier heard Robertson's band playing at the Crosstown Blues Festival. Robertson moved back to Louisiana, learned to play slide guitar, and toured for several years in the 1980s with Chenier. In addition, Robertson's guitar work appeared on Paul Simon's Graceland album, and he was on the bill at the 1994 Notodden Blues Festival. Robertson's I'm the Man (1994) was the first release on the Code Blue label. It was nominated for a W.C. Handy Award. However the record label folded and Robertson re-appeared in 1998 on the independent label, Audioquest, with his next offering, Going Back Home. In November 2005 he released Guitar Man - Live with his new backing band, BluesMove. In 2008 Robertson & BluesMove played at the Harvest Time Blues festival in Monaghan, Ireland.
