Ecco il comunicato ufficiale.


Arkansas-based blues guitarist/vocalist Michael "Iron Man" Burks will perform in Italy between Thursday, July 7 and Thursday, July 14, 2011.
Burks will be performing songs from his latest Alligator Records CD, Iron Man. Boasting remarkable natural talent and deep-rooted soulfulness, Burks' music is driven by an intense, blue collar work ethic that has earned him well-deserved international recognition, making him one of the blues world's fastest-rising stars.

Burks' powerful presence, inventive and riveting guitar work and soul-shaking vocals make him the torchbearer of electric blues guitar heroes. His instantly identifiable guitar sound and his live charisma have already earned him four Blues Music Award nominations. Burks' first Alligator release, Make It Rain, was named as one of the Top 200 greatest guitar recordings by GuitarOne magazine.

In 2006, the Delta Cultural Center awarded Burks the prestigious Sonny Payne Award for Blues Excellence, presented each year to an individual or individuals who have strongly influenced blues music in Arkansas.
