Chris Thomas King – Live in Florida May 22 (St. Petersburg) & 23 ( Sarasota)

Blues Sensation From the Movies “O Brother Where Art Thou” and “Ray.” is Coming to Florida.

For Grammy Award-winning guitarist Chris Thomas King, the blues has always been a family business. He spent his early years working at Tabby’s Blues Box and Heritage Hall, a Baton Rouge, La., juke joint owned and operated by his family for 25 years. A string of well-received records, including 1990’s “Cry of the Prophets,” 1995’s “Red Mud” and 1999’s “Me, My Guitar and the Blues,” followed. But the guitarist didn’t gain widespread fame until appearing in Joel and Ethan Coen’s film “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” in 2000. King is currently working on a new album, “Shades of Treme,” which takes its name from a New Orleans neighborhood. “That new music rocks,” King said. “I crank up my amplifier and play what I like to think is real exciting blues rock.”
