The Rockfish is pleased to present Delmark recording artist, Jimmy Burns,
8 PM Thursday October 20. Cover is $8.
During a live set of Jimmy's music you're likely to hear his powerful interpretations of songs by Elmore James and Muddy Waters, alongside those by Curtis Mayfield and Ray Charles, plus Jimmy's own thoroughly contemporary originals.
Jimmy's first Delmark CD Leaving Here Walking (Delmark 694) was chosen as Blues Album Of The Year by the National Association of Independent Record Distributors. On Night Time Again Jimmy featured his unique blend of contemporary Chicago blues, Delta feel, R&B and soul. His current album, Back To The Delta reflects those same influences with 13 new original songs including Juke, Juke, Juked, Stranded In Clarksdale, Country Boy In The City.
"Jimmy Burns accompanies his soulful, countrified voice with unstoppable rhythms and sure-handed solos. His vibrant, heartfelt blues and boogies echo the Mississippi Delta, where he was born and raised." -Guitar Player.
