JAMES "SUPER CHIKAN"JOHNSON

JAMES "SUPER CHIKAN"JOHNSON
This famed Delta blues musician crafts guitars from cigar boxes
By Terri Peterson Smith

Growing up in the Mississippi Delta of the 1950s, James “Super Chikan” Johnson learned to play from the blues greats who gathered to jam on his grandfather´s porch.

“Everyone played,” he says, “but I couldn´t afford to buy instruments.” So he crafted them from materials at hand: oil cans, suitcases and especially cigar boxes.

Gradually, this beloved bluesman has gained recognition for the visual artistry of the guitars he creates, as well as his music. “I´m a double artist,” he says, laughing. Part folk art, part musical instrument, his cigar box guitars are in the collections of fans such as Paul Simon, Caroline Kennedy and Morgan Freeman.

Working from his home in Clarksdale, Mississippi, Johnson acquires vintage wooden cigar boxes from friends or at collectors shows. He adds a neck, strings and a pickup for amplification, then paints and bejewels them.

The result: slide guitars with a haunting electronic pickup blues-style twang that he plays in concerts around the world. “I enjoy it when people gather around after shows to ask about them,” he says, adding that each distinctive instrument “offers all the colors in my heart.”
