Kent Burnside was born into the blues.  Kent Burnside was  born in 1971 in Memphis Tennessee, and spent his early years in Holly  Springs, Mississippi. He is the oldest Grandson and one of the closest  pupils of the legendary R.L. Burnside

 

Kent first heard the blues  while watching his grandfather R.L. perform on the family farm to the  locals. Kent used to sell sandwiches to audience members for a dollar a  piece during these performances.  

The first lesson RL taught Kent  was that to be a bluesman you have to find your own rhythm on the  guitar. You can't play someone else's rhythm - as rhythm comes from your  heart.  

It started with Buddy Guy.  

Kent got his real start  in the music business playing with Jimbo Mathus (Fat Possum Records)  and going on tour with Buddy Guy in the early 2000's. That was when he  started developing his signature style of blues: dark, hypnotic,  inviting and very danceable.  

Kent performed for Samuel L. Jackson to help Jackson prepare for his role in Black Snake Moan (2007).  

He has also worked on The Blues Brothers' stage shows with Dan Aykroyd. Aykroyd is a huge fan and supporter of Kent's work.  Bruce Willis once played harmonica at a jam with Kent Burnside.  

Kent  has spent decades performing at festivals and has toured all over the  world. Most recently in 2019 he performed at the Blues Rules Festival in  Switzerland, and played a two week tour of Australia with The New  Savages.  Kent Burnside regularly performs at Festivals around the US with The Flood Brothers.
