CEDRIC BURNSIDE Plus Guests

Doors Open 8pm Show 8.30pm

Cedric Burnside returns to Australia for the fourth time following his third Grammy nomination - a Best Traditional Blues Album nod for this year's 'I Be Trying', which he recorded at Royal Studios in Memphis, where Al Green cut his classic sides for Hi Records in the 60s and 70s. Cedric is blues royalty. The grandson and longtime drummer of the late great RL Burnside, he carries the mantle of Mississippi Hill Country blues - with its commitment to polyrhythmic percussion and its refusal of familiar blues chord progressions - to new audiences around the world. These days predominantly a guitarist, Cedric plays stripped back, and sizzles like a live-wire. Cedric's music echoes the past, present and future all at once and expands upon the traditional darkness of blues with themes of love and hope. You don't know soul-stirring until you know Cedric Burnside.
