Chris Thomas King is now one of most recognized and successful blues artist of his generation. The multi Grammy award winning musician and actor grew up as a child-prodigy guitarist learning the blues at the feet of some of the music’s masters at the Baton Rouge, Louisiana club Tabby’s Blues Box, owned by his father, Rockin’ Tabby Thomas. The “Red Mud Sessions” was a return to his delta blues roots.
