The GRAMMY Museum welcomed Christone ""Kingfish"" Ingram to the Museum’s intimate 200-seat Clive Davis Theater for an evening including a conversation discussing his GRAMMY-award nominated Contemporary Blues Album, Live In London, with a performance that followed.
Over the course of blues history, there are a small number of live albums that have stood the test of time to become classics of the genre—Muddy Waters’ At Newport 1960, B.B. King’s Live In Cook County Jail and Albert King’s Live Wire/Blues Power are among these deeply rooted, highly emotional and truly iconic recordings. And now comes Live In London, the jaw-dropping third album from GRAMMY Award-winning, Christone “Kingfish” Ingram. Recorded on June 6, 2023, in front of a sweaty, sold-out, standing-room-only crowd at the famous UK club, The Garage, Live In London is the guitar-driven live album Kingfish’s fans around the world have been clamoring for since they first watched him perform as a teenager on YouTube.
According to Rolling Stone, “Kingfish is one of the most exciting young guitarists in years, with a sound that encompasses B.B. King, Jimi Hendrix and Prince.” Christone “Kingfish” Ingram delivers contemporary blues music that speaks to his generation and beyond, bringing to bear the full healing and hopeful power of the blues. Live In London captures Kingfish’s lightning in a bottle. It's an onstage snapshot of the young singer, songwriter and guitarist creating musical magic in real time, leaving his listeners spellbound and always wanting more.
