Kevin Burt

Winner of the 2018 International Blues Challenge!

For the 1st time in the 34 year history of The International Blues Challenge held in Memphis, TN, Kevin Burt from Waterloo, IA representing the Central Iowa Blues Society won 1st place in not only the solo/duo competition, but he won best solo/duo guitarist, and the Lee Oskar Award for Best Harmonica Player! For more than 25 years Kevin “B.F.” Burt has been electrifying audiences throughout the Midwest dispelling the myth that true blues has no roots in Iowa. His soul-inspired presentation is unique which consistently gets him compared to a range of artists like Bill Withers and Aaron Neville, with the ability to build an audience rapport that has been compared to B.B. King. Kevin is a self-taught musician (vocals, harmonica, and guitar). His voice and presence are powerful. Though he performs between 325 and 400 shows a year, he holds nothing back night after night and audiences leave knowing that.
