Once a generation, a blues artist comes along who shows audiences how moving the best blues music can be. Sprung from the same earth as so many of the Delta blues masters, 20-year-old guitarist, vocalist and songwriter Christone "Kingfish" Ingram comes bursting out of Clarksdale, Mississippi, just ten miles from the legendary crossroads of Highways 61 and 49.
Kingfish has shared stages with Buddy Guy, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Robert Randolph, Guitar Shorty, Eric Gales and many others. He has befriended rock stars from Nikki Sixx to Dave Grohl. He has performed at festivals around the country, including stops at the Chicago Blues Festival, the Beale Street Music Festival in Memphis, the Bonita Blues Festival in Florida, The Waterfront Blues Festival in Portland, on the Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise, at Austin's Antone's and at San Francisco's famed Biscuits & Blues. He's performed in Europe multiple times, including appearances at the Moulin Blues Festival in the Netherlands and the Blues Heaven Festival in Denmark. Recently, Christone "Kingfish" Ingram released his long-awaited debut album, KINGFISH.
