gateway to the blues museum and visitors center


Summary

Bring your lawn chairs and join us on Oct. 4 from 6-8pm for live music on the Gateway to the Blues Museum stage. This event is part of Bridging the Blues and is a free concert. Blues great Christone "Kingfish" Ingram will be headlining. Kingfish has shared the stage with household names such as Bob Margolin, Eric Gales, Rick Derringer, Guitar Shorty, Buddy Guy and many more. He has played festivals and venues all over the U.S. and has performed in six different countries! He's even been a guest on the Rachael Ray Show and the Steve Harvey Show! Kingfish has also performed in Washington D.C. at The White House, right in front of First Lady Michelle Obama! Even though he’s from the Delta, surrounded by all of its plantations and and he travels Highway 49 and Highway 61 on a regular basis, unlike many of his musical predecessors from Mississippi, Kingfish never had to pick cotton or sell his soul to the devil at the infamous Crossroads. Yet, this child prodigy’s soul is possessed with the feeling, passion and fire of the much older men who created the most important genre of American music, the Blues.
