As the darling of blues purists and aficionados, and the last great hope of the waning folk blues revival, Chris Thomas King shocked the music world in the early 90’s when he abandoned all pretenses of primitivism and embraced hip hop modernity and digital aesthetics, turning the blues world upside down. Come see why King was chosen by the Coen brothers to play the role of itinerant bluesman Tommy Johnson alongside George Clooney in the movie O Brother, Where Art Thou? Larger than life on the silver screen, Chris Thomas King, acoustic guitar in hand, captivated audiences the world over.
