MISSISSIPPI MEETS MUSIC CITY!
A Special Event in Nashville – Tuesday, March 22nd, 8 pm
Old blues, new blues, hot food, cold drinks!
And the back story –
Nearly 20 years ago, when EG Kight decided to switch from country music to the blues, I had to take a crash course, and learn all I could about the genre.
I found myself at the club, listening to Stacy Mitchhart and his band live, as often as I could.
He and his band taught me what I needed to know.
Clearly Stacy is a master of his art, and he just keeps getting better with age…
On March 22nd, Stacy Mitchhart is joined on the City Winery Nashville stage by several artists making their own marks on the genre. City Winery is one of the city’s premier listening rooms.
Up-and-coming 30 year old Jarekus Singleton, who, according to Living Blues Magazine, is “fearlessly dedicated to breaking boundaries and blazing new paths” melds hip-hop, rock and R&B grooves with contemporary and traditional blues, turning audiences of all ages into devoted fans.
And Christone “Kingfish” Ingram, a 17 year old multi-instrumentalist, presents his take on the blues with the passion and fire of the much older men who created the genre. Born in the Delta, Kingfish started playing drums at age 6, then learned bass and lead guitar, and has performed at various venues already, including the White House.
