Michael Burks Project CD Release Party Tickets

Michael Burks ProjectI'm a Bluesman was recorded in 1998 at Kingsnake Studio in Sanford, Florida. The record never found a label for a home and remained in the possession of Executive Producer, Wightman Harris until it was released in 2016 partnering with Bobbie Burks. The record debuted #1 on the Living Blues Radio Chart and immediately began receiving highly acclaimed reviews. It has garnered a nomination for a Blues Music Award as best historical release of 2016. The record is a compilation of songs penned by Burks and co-written tunes with the late Bob Greenlee. The selections also contain a mix of obscure covers and the unsuspecting signature track “Sara Smile” by Hall and Oates. It is with great pleasure that this recording has been made available to fans worldwide. “I’m A Bluesman is exclusively available for purchase either at shows from the Michael Burks Project or through PayPal at
