Bobby Rush has been one of the consummate bluesmen for more than 65 years. And, the thing is, dude’s one of the only ones left who can honestly fly under that hallowed, blues-master banner. With a workman-like dedication, the now-83-year-old Rush has released more than 30 full length albums, and tons of other material, including seven albums in the last 10 years.

The most recent of those albums, 2016’s Porcupine Meat, garnered Rush his first Grammy Award for Best Traditional Blues Album. Don’t miss your chance to see this American treasure and blues luminary, as ever, practicing his timeless craft somewhere near the intersection of history and mystery, of raw emotion and easy intuition.

Friday, August 25, $48-$78, 8pm, Carlos Alvarez Studio Theater, Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, 100 Auditorium Circle, (210) 223-8624,
