Guitarist and vocalist Chris Thomas King carries on the tradition of the mythic, Southern/Mississippi Delta bluesman, one man and his guitar and songs against a mean ole world. He performs originals and blues standards in a style that venerates the likes of Robert Johnson, Blind Lemon Jefferson and Mississippi Fred McDowell, but with clear connections to R&B and Chicago-blues crooning. Two separate sets at 8 and 10 p.m.
