NEW ORLEANS BLUES at the Strand!

By The Strand Theatre | Aug 24, 2018

Grammy Award-winning blues artist Chris Thomas King will return to the Strand Theatre stage on Saturday, August 25 at 7:30pm.

 

The New Orleans born artist has been known for his audacious fusion of blues and hip-hop. A determined progressive, King has strived to reinvigorate the blues as a living African American art with a more contemporary approach, refusing to treat it as a museum piece whose "authentic" forms needed careful preservation.

 

King reached a whole new audience with the Coen Brothers film "O Brother, Where Art Thou?," not only appearing on the award-winning soundtrack but playing a prominent role as the legendary bluesman Tommy Johnson.

 

King has won "Album of the Year" for both Grammy Award and Country Music Awards, and has sold more than 10 million records in the United States.

 

Tickets are $20/Advance. $25/Door.

Lobby and Balcony Bars will be open for age 21 and older.
