Grady Champion • 7:30pm & 9:30pm • $22
Mississippi-based blues musician Grady Champion has been captivating audiences for the better part of two decades. The singer/harp player/guitarist/songwriter has often been compared to other revolutionary artists such as Sonny Boy Williamson, Howlin' Wolf and Junior Wells. In 2013 Champion signed to Malaco Records (headquartered in nearby Jackson, MS) and his first full-length release with the legendary blues label was released the following year. Bootleg Whiskey, named for the George Jackson song that is one of the album's highlights, establishes Champion as a torch carrier for authentic Mississippi blues.
