Finally getting some of the recognition after 30+ years in the blues trenches, Franc Robert’s “Mulligan Stew” (on Blue Chihuahua Records) has been receiving press accolades and extensive airplay all over the USA and on the internet, winning fans wherever he plays his brand of stripped-down delta drenched blues. 2012 has certainly been a year to remember, playing concerts and festivals all over Florida with an album that truly shows what he is capable of, singing, playing and writing his own style of blues.
“Franc Robert sweats and sways onstage, his nimble fingers dancing along his guitar neck as he moans and howls the blues. It’s still early on a Friday night, but already about 25 blues fans have gathered around the stage in Buckingham Blues Bar. They sip beer as they bob their heads to Robert’s high-energy tunes about love, heartbreak and his “lemon-headed” ex-wife. “This next song fits this bar so perfectly,” says the grinning, ponytailed bluesman from Port Saint Richey. “It’s called ‘Groovin’ on the Outskirts of Town.’”
