Robert Kimbrough Sr. Blues Connection @ Chrome
February 14 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm$10
COME RIDE THE BLUES WITH ROBERT KIMBROUGH, SR. BLUES CONNECTION. Robert Kimbrough, Sr., the youngest son of Cotton-Patch Soul Bluesman Junior Kimbrough, pays tribute to the great music of Robert’s late father. Robert Kimbrough Sr. Blues Connection’s hypnotic sound is a melodic combination of traditional Cotton Patch Blues, post-electric jams with smooth, soulful vocals. Steeped in the Blues his whole life, Robert began playing guitar at age five. He learned to play all night alongside his father, Junior (The Original Soul Blues Boy) at house parties and picnics. In 1995 Robert joined his father and brothers at “Junior’s Juke Joint” an infamous juke joint in Chulahoma, MS, where he played regularly until 2000, when the club closed due to a fire.
For over ten years Robert host evenings at a club in Holly Springs called The Hut, where live music is played weekly. Robert Kimbrough, Sr. BluesConnection is the house band at the Hut. Many local players and other musicians from around the world, stop in jam with the band.
Festivals played: King Biscuit Blues Festival, Juke Joint Festival, Goat Fest, North Mississippi Hill Country Picnic, Greenwood Music Fest, Kimbrough Cotton Patch Blues Festival, Blues Rules Crissier Festival and Lucerne Blues Festival in Switzerland.
