Grammy-winning (Best Contemporary Blues Album 2022) guitarist, vocalist and songwriter Christone “Kingfish” Ingram has quickly become the defining blues voice of his generation.
From his hometown of Clarksdale, Mississippi to stages around the world, the now 22-year-old has already headlined two national tours and performed with friends including Vampire Weekend, Jason Isbell and Buddy Guy (with whom he appeared on Austin City Limits). He was interviewed by Sir Elton John on his Apple Music podcast, 'Rocket Hour', and recently released a duet with Bootsy Collins.
In January 2021, Ingram was simultaneously on the covers of both Guitar World and DownBeat magazines, and graced the cover of Living Blues in late 2020. Rolling Stone declared, “Kingfish is one of the most exciting young guitarists in years, with a sound that encompasses B.B. King, Jimi Hendrix and Prince.”
Special guests are Glasgow-based Blue Milk, a one-of-a-kind roots group harking back to traditional turn-of-the-century Delta Blues and 60s/70s electric Blues Rock. Taking its name from the classic Captain Beefheart album 'Safe As Milk', Blue Milk are heavily influenced by the slide guitar style of Ry Cooder and inspired by Blues legends such as Muddy Waters, Junior Kimborough and Lightnin Hopkins to name a few. Blue Milk are modern bluesmen. Channelling the raw spirit of blues in its most authentic form, whilst simultaneously bringing a driven twist to the genre.
