Lonesome Blues | February 2 – 11, 2023

By Alan Govenar & Akin Babatundé

Directed by Akin Babatundé


Lonesome Blues is the celebration of the legendary local bluesman Blind Lemon Jefferson. Born blind, but ultimately able to express his deepest emotions through music, Jefferson was discovered on a street corner in the Deep Ellum section of Dallas, Texas in 1925. He made more than 80 records over the next four years—becoming one the most prolific and influential performers of his generation and propelling the growth of rhythm and blues, soul, doo-wop, rap, and hip-hop. Recently produced at the Undermain Theatre in Dallas, Circle is honored to bring this epic story with live music to Fort Worth.
