Delta Blues Museum and Alligator Records invite you to MEET THE ARTIST
Clarksdale native Christone "Kingfish" Ingram
on Wednesday, June 5th @ 5PM
Kingfish began his already-stellar musical career in our classroom as a member of the award-winning Delta Blues Museum student band. Join us on June 5th when he will be signing copies of his brand-new debut CD, KINGFISH, which will be available for purchase at the event. Check out the official video below for "Outside of This Town," the first single off of the album.
Of this talented musician, Buddy Guy said, "Kingfish is the next explosion of the blues."
We couldn't agree more...
We look forward to celebrating Kingfish's success with you!
About the Delta Blues Museum
Established in 1979 by the Carnegie Public Library Board of Trustees and re-organized as a stand-alone museum in 1999, the Delta Blues Museum is Mississippi's oldest music museum and the nation's first museum dedicated to the American art form known as the Blues. A 2013 recipient of the IMLS National Medal for Museum and Library Services - the nation's highest honor for museum and library service to the community - and a 2014 winner of the National Arts & Humanities Youth Program Award, the Delta Blues Museum is dedicated to creating a welcoming place where visitors find meaning, value and perspective by exploring the history and heritage of the unique American musical art form, the Blues. The Museum is honored to be a Great River Road Interpretive Center.
