Download the podcast for a full hour with Kevin BF Burt.

In this episode of IPR Studio One's "Java Blend," host Ben Kieffer will chat with Kevin "BF" Burt.

Listen to the podcast to find out more about the the Coralville native and his music.

For over 20 years, Kevin “B.F.” Burt has been electrifying audiences throughout the nation dispelling the myth that true blues has no roots in Iowa.  His soul-inspired presentation is unique which consistently gets him compared to a range of artists like Bill Withers and Aaron Nevill, with the ability to build an audience rapport that has been compared to B.B. King.

Burt is a self-taught musician on vocals, harmonica, and guitar, whose smooth, warm vocal presentation sets a mood of relaxed exhilaration, with a welcome mixture of serious music and infectious humor audiences of all ages enjoy.  His voice and presence are powerful.  His unique delivery ranges from the sweetest, fullest, juiciest come-on to the most playful growl.
