Cedric Burnside Project
September 4, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Bluesdays 10th season in The Village at Squaw Valley concludes with a rare treat, the percussive, hypnotic Hill Country blues from the Cedric Burnside Project. Cedric Burnside is the son of drummer Calvin Jackson and grandson of the all-time great R.L. Burnside. He began touring at age 13. “My granddad used to play out on the porch, and we’d have house parties every weekend. Johnny Woods would come over and blow harmonica, and he’d drink two or three gallons of corn liquor. We just stomped up dirt,” he said. Burnside plays in a duo with guitarist Trenton Ayers, whose father was in Junior Kimbrough’s band. Ayers and Cedric Burnside have been friend since they were children.
