Entertainment



From the legendary blues family of “Big Daddy” comes the rhythmically unorthodox artist, Cedric Burnside. The six-time winner of “Best Memphis Blues Drummer” will have you thankful for life’s essentials and dancing through the night. Cedric tells a story of human condition and musically brings people together in a divided world, in his words, “a bluesman has to find a way to make it through.” The two-time GRAMMY nominee has shared a stage with Jimmy Buffet, Widespread Panic and his grandfather, blues musician R.L. Burnside.

Art of Wine is thrilled to host Cedric Burnside right before he plays at Moon River Music Festival in Chattanooga and Bourbon and Beyond in Louisville. Check out his most recent album, Descendants of Hill Country

Cedric Burnside will appear on the main stage at 8:00 p.m. on South Range Line Road.
