The story of a blues legend from Mississippi will play out Friday night on the stage of the Saenger Theater in downtown Hattiesburg.
"Robert Johnson: The Man, the Myth & the Music" - starring blues musician Vasti Jackson - focuses on the events surrounding the much fabled life of Johnson and presents some of his more obscure tunes.
