Cedric Burnside Project

When: Fri., March 16 2012

THE CEDRIC BURNSIDE PROJECT The grandson of bluesman R.L. Burnside learned North Mississippi hill country blues by playing drums in his granddad’s band until the elder Burnside’s death in 2005. Cedric isn’t quite the guitarist R.L. was, but those Mississippi Fred McDowell guitar-roots may have been passed down because Cedric does exhibit the familial gift for imbuing one chord with a wide array of tempos and personalities. So much so that the Blues Music Awards named Cedric’s 2009 release, The Two Man Wrecking Crew, its Best New Artist Debut, and he won Drummer of the Year in 2010. One imagines his granddad’s sitting down in heaven with a ass pocket of whiskey, beaming. (John Schacht)
