Event

Cedric Burnside Live at the Empty Glass
My school was a juke joint/From a kid till I was grown/And blues is really/All I ever known
Aint Gonna Take No Mess

Take one glance at the iconic tintype photograph which serves as the cover to his new album, Benton County Relic, and you know immediately that Cedric Burnside is the real deal. When I first saw it, I thought I looked like an outlaw, he laughs.

The 39-year-old still lives on several acres not far from the Holly Springs, Mississippi, home where he was raised by Big Daddy, his grandfather, the late singer/songwriter/guitarist R.L. Burnside whom Cedric famously played with, just as his own father, drummer Calvin Jackson, did.  Cedric was literally born to the blues, more specifically, the rhythmically unorthodox Hill country variant which emerged from Mississippi, where he grew up surrounded (and influenced) by Junior Kimbrough, Jessie May Hemphill and Otha Turner, as well as delta musicians T-Model Ford and Paul Wine Jones.

Grammy-nominated in 2015 for Best Blues Album for the Cedric Burnside Projects Descendants of Hill Country, as well as the recipient of the Blues Music Awards honor as Drummer of the Year for four consecutive years, Cedrics latest album offers a showcase for his electric and acoustic guitar, recording 26 tracks in just two days with drummer/slide guitarist Brian Jay in the latters Brooklyn home studio in a rush of creativity. Its his first release for Single Lock Records, the Florence, Alabama label headquartered across the Tennessee River from the legendary Muscle Shoals Sound Studio and responsible for critically acclaimed records by John Paul White, Nicole Atkins, Dylan LeBlanc and St. Paul & the Broken Bones.
