Summer Sunset Series 2011

THE LAFAYETTE-OXFORD-UNIVERSITY CULTURAL EVENTS COMMITTEE,
THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSISSIPPI MUSEUM, AND INVITATION OXFORD PRESENT

Bluesman Kenny Brown

In the Grove on the University of Mississippi campus in Oxford, MS
from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. on June 12, 2011.

Bluesman Kenny Brown trained in the North Mississippi Hill Country Blues tradition under such legends as Joe Callicott and R. L. Burnside, with whom he toured five continents and recorded seven albums, including the Grammy nominated Burnside on Burnside, appearing in the films Big Bad Love and Black Snake Moan.

Brown has also performed and recorded with a number of other artists, including James Burton, Cedell Davis, Dale Hawkins, Jessie Mae Hempill, Jo Jo Herman, Big Jack Johnson, Paul “Wine” Jones, The Kentucky Headhunters, Junior Kimbrough, Larry McCray, North Mississippi All-Stars, Smiling Assassins, Jon Spencer, and Othar Turner.

When not touring, Kenny Brown resides on his farm in the middle of the Holly Springs National Forest; returning to the backyard of the Blues, playing in local joints, and passing on the lessons learned from legends. He brings this strong tradition to the stage for a memorable evening of the 2011 Summer Sunset Series.
