Blues musician Robert Kimbrough Sr. continues the Cotton Patch Soul Blues style created by his father, the legendary Junior Kimbrough. Robert is a recipient of the 2019 MAC Artist Fellowship for Traditional Folk Arts and Teaching Apprenticeship. From an early age, Robert was steeped in the sounds and life of North Mississippi and its distinctive styles of blues. Growing up, blues was simply part of everyday life as a Kimbrough. Robert listened first-hand to Mississippi Blues royalty play with his father at home, at Junior’s juke joint, as well as the ever-frequent weekend house parties. Kimbrough, along with the Burnside name, is part of a blues dynasty that remains strong today, drawing people from all over the world to enjoy their performances.
