Once a generation, a blues artist comes along who not only reminds mainstream audiences how deeply satisfying and emotionally moving the best blues music can be, but shakes the genre to its core. Sprung from the same earth as so many of the Delta blues masters, Christone “Kingfish” Ingram came bursting out of Clarksdale, Mississippi, just ten miles from the legendary crossroads of Highways 61 and 49. With both eyes on the future and the blues in his blood, the 22-year-old guitarist, vocalist and songwriter took the music world by storm with his 2019 debut album, KINGFISH, with accolades across the board. Rolling Stone magazine summed up the experience: “The blues savior is one of the most exciting young guitarists in years, with a sound that encompasses B.B. King, Jimi Hendrix & Prince.”
