We have the blues soul artist of yesterday, but we also have some modern blues soul artists of today like Kingfish. Christone “Kingfish” Ingram was born Jan. 19, 1999. He is 22 years old today. He is a blues guitarist and singer from Clarksdale, Mississippi who became a well - known performer as a teenager. Kingfish has recorded with other artist such as Buddy Guy, Eric Gales, and Keb Mo.When I saw Kingfish video “Fresh Out” (featuring Buddy Guy), I was blown away. Impressed. If you haven’t heard or seen Kingfish perform, you’ve got to hear him.Kingfish became interested in the blues around age 5 when his father showed him a PBS documentary about Muddy Waters. He was taught how to play by Bill Howl-N-Madd Perry and Richard “Daddy Rich” Crisman at the arts and education program of the museum. Those two Gus taught him well. Kingfish plays like a blues man that’s been playing the blues for years. If somebody would have blindfolded me from seeing his face, I would have thought he was at least fifty years of age singing and playing guitar. But he’s only 22.You really should check out Kingfish at christonekingfishingram.com. Check out the info about his blues music awards, and his grammy nominated & Blues Music Award Winning Album available now. Well, that’s it for today. I’m Gail Nobles, and you’re listening to Podcast and Blues.
