This week Java Blend welcomes Iowa blues artist Kevin “BF” Burt. A social worker by trade, Burt’s smooth and powerful voice soothes the spirit when paired with his soulful guitar playing. Burt’s special blend of funk inspired blues has come from almost two decades of touring across the Midwest.
Beginning his singing career in church choirs in Waterloo where he grew up, Burt became heavily involved with music attending local blues jams an adult when a co-worker complimented his rich vocal ability. Burt also works with the “Blues in the Schools” program and introduced it to the Iowa City area. He both writes his own music and covers blues classics.
