New album from renowned bluesman Cedric Burnside, grandson of legendary R.L 'Benton County Relic'

Burnside was Grammy-nominated in 2015 for Best Blues Album and was the recipient of the Blues Music Awards honour as Drummer of the Year for four consecutive years. With 'Benton County Relic', Burnside showcases his electric and acoustic guitar prowess, recording the record in just two days with drummer/slide guitarist Brian Jay in the latter's Brooklyn home studio. While Burnside draws upon a tradition that's decades old,the tracks on 'Benton County Relic' sound more immediate and cut deeper than any other artists recent attempt to interpret the blues.

As the grandson of Burnside and son of drummer Calvin Jackson, Cedric has been playing musicÌ_åÇÌ__ his whole life. He has performed and recorded with countless musicians, including Junior Kimbrough, Kenny Brown, North Mississippi Allstars, Burnside Exploration, Widespread Panic, Jimmy Buffett, T Model Ford, Bobby Rush, Honey Boy Edwards, Hubert Sumlin, Galactic, Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears, and The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion among many others. In 2006, he was featured in Craig Brewer's critically acclaimed feature film Black Snake Moan, playing drums alongside Samuel L. Jackson. (The film is a loose tribute to R.L. Burnside, and gives many nods to the late bluesman.)
