For four decades Johnny’s consummate musicianship and vocal skills have graced live music scenes across the country and abroad. He has toured, performed and recorded with many true blues and Americana Roots Music legends including:
Mississippi Fred McDowell, Robert Lockwood Jr., Johnny Shines, Big Walter Horton, Roosevelt Sykes, Nathan Abshire, Robert Pete Williams, Eddie Taylor, Billy Boy Arnold, Hound Dog Taylor, Johnny Young, Houston Stackhouse, and Boogie Woogie Red.
He recorded and toured with Johnny Shines and Snooky Pryor, producing and playing guitar on their W.C. Handy Award-winning album Back to the Country. He was a lead vocalist and multi-instrumentalist with Asleep at the Wheel when they won their first of many Grammy Awards.
Arthur put his guitar down for a while in 1997 and became an over-the-road truck driver. He did tour Florida in 2004 and 2005 with Delta Dave Johnson when his schedule would allow. After that he returned to full-time truck driving. The music flame was re-sparked when his younger brother, a classical guitarist who had toured all over Europe, was starting a blues band. He asked about some originals Arthur had written. Sharing his music and composing new material brought on the rejuvenation of Arthur's blues playing career. In 2015, Arthur was on short-haul run to San Antonio, when he came by The Cove and found the San Antonio Blues Society monthly blues jam in progress. And he's been attending ever since!
