Cedric Burnside + Husky Tones (at The Louisiana)
Bluesman Cedric Burnside heads to The Louisiana armed with tracks from his latest album Benton Country Relic. Burnside grew up around the blues, thanks to his grandfather, the late singer/songwriter/guitarist Big Daddy R.L. Burnside, and his father, drummer Calvin Jackson. The follow up to 2015s Grammy-nominated Descendants of Hill Country, Benton Coutry Relic is spare, spacious and gritty (Billboard), a soul-baring record that traverses Burnsides poverty stricken upbringing through to the grief of losing his parents, uncle and brother in close succession. As Cedric comments: Blues is about gettin through hard times and honestly it comes from African Americans wantin to tell their story. This is mine.
Simple but stunningly effective, theres a haunting quality to Cedrics delivery which lingers long after the final note has slide into silence.
Plus support from Husky Tones
