Robert Kimbrough Sr.

About:

Robert Kimbrough Sr continues the Cotton Patch Soul Blues style created by his father, the legendary Junior Kimbrough. From an early age, Robert was steeped

in the sounds and life of North Mississippi and its distinctive style of blues. Growing up, Robert listened,first-hand to Mississippi blues royalty that played withhis father at home, at Junior’s Juke Joint Club, and the ever frequent weekend house party and porch jam session. The blues was simply part of everyday life as

a Kimbrough. Robert continues his father’s musical tradition, along with some of his siblings. You can oftenfind many of them sharing the stage on any given nightin Mississippi. The Kimbrough name, along with the Burnside name, is part of a blues dynasty that remains strong today, bringing people from all over the world to see and hear them play.

The Cotton Patch Soul Blues style that Robert plays is a straight link to the music that his father originated in North Mississippi. It is a deep soul sound that can be linked back to his ancestors coming from the cottonfields, singing and ‘hollering‘ as they worked in the tallrows of Mississippi cotton. This distinct and somewhat underground style of blues is rooted in hypnotic,rhythms and dance-able grooves. The Black Keysreleased an entire album in 2006 of Junior Kimbrough cover songs called Chulahoma: The Songs of Junior 

Kimbrough. Up until the mid 80s, the only way to hearthis music was to visit a church-turned-blues-denfounded by Junior Kimbrough in Chulahoma, MS that unfortunately burned down in 2000.

Robert Kimbrough Sr. Blues Connection can be seen on the Mississippi blues series “Mojo Hands and Moonshine,” Episode 2: Paul MacLeod Has Left The Building. In this episode, blues impresarios Roger Stolleand Jeff Konkel visit the site of Junior Kimbrough’sburned down Juke Joint and interview Robert Kimbrough about Junior Kimbrough’s music and the music tradition that Robert is carrying on

Jeremy Pinnell
with very special guest: Chris Rattie & The New Rebels

November 03, 2019

Honored to welcome - Jeremy Pinnell - One of Rollings Stone's top 10 artists you need to know. "Hardscrabble honky-tonk at its best, nodding to Johnny Cash and Buck Owens in equal measure. Ties of Blood and Affection is a stellar collection that could earn Pinnell comparisons to Sturgill Simpson.” - ROLLING STONE

Chris Rattie & The New Rebels
The band is a roosty, and dynamic three piece, whose sound ranges from raw, elemental rock n roll to harmony driven acoustic ballads. The New Rebel’s sound is simultaneously anthemic, cathartic, and intimate. Chris Rattie’s crafted tales of lovers, losers, and dreamers wrap themselves around hard driving rhythm, greasy electric guitar, and gritty harmonica, forming a rough and tumble fusion of rock, blues, country, and folk.
