We couldn’t be more honored to announce this rare and special performance. As you probably know, Chris is a Grammy Award Winning Artist ( Blues Album of the Year ), Country Music Awards Winner (Album of the Year ) and an accomplished actor ( Oh Brother Where Art Thou )…..and if you’ve never seen him live and in person, get ready…he will leave you amazed. This is truly one of those shows you don’t want to miss.
Like Miles Davis and Bob Dylan before him, Chris Thomas King was originally celebrated as the young savior of an aging musical culture when he first arrived on the national scene. Branded as a rebel King was banned form blues festivals across the United States. He fled to Denmark to cool his heels in the more liberal environment that flourished in Europe. While in Denmark he recorded and released the critically acclaimed hip-hop blues album “21st Century Blues from da hood.” The French embraced him as a major artist with vision and the rest of Europe followed. He toured with his Danish band extensively across Europe playing major festivals and theaters but longed to return to New Orleans. Upon returning to the United States in 1995, he started his own independent production company and record label, 21st Century Blues. Soon after he found success as a film composer and actor. Winning three Grammy Awards by 2003 and several Country music CMA awards.
