You might already know that Cedric Burnside — grandson of the great R.L. Burnside — is a fabulous drummer, but the guy can play guitar too, as you can see on the Cedric Burnside Project’s Kickstarter video:
The Cedric Burnside Project has already met the $8,000 goal for the campaign, so we’ll soon be seeing — and hearing — a beautiful new album of Mississippi hill country blues. But let’s hope support keeps flowing in, since additional advance sales will go toward a new tour vehicle. There are some awesome rewards for your support, including a digital download and a physical copy of the album for just $25. For $250, you can hang out at Cedric’s house, where he will fix a home-cooked meal and jam on the porch. Click here to go to Kickstarter.
Cedric Burnside Project — Cedric and guitarist Trenton Ayers — played the inaugural Revival Fest in 2013, the kickoff party at Pacci for this year’s festival, and a spectacular sunset set on Saturday. More photos after the jump:
