About Chris Thomas King

Blues Fest attendees may recognize Chris Thomas King from his appearance in O Brother Where Art Thou as delta blues legend Tommy Johnson, but his musical experience extends far beyond traditional southern blues. The son of local blues icon Tabby Thomas, King picked up music at an early age, traveling for gigs as a rhythm guitarist by sixth grade and regularly sitting in with swamp blues legends like Silas Hogan, Guitar Kelly, and Clarence Edwards. He began crafting his own style early on in his career, which eventually bloomed to include newer musical elements like hip-hop and electronica. He’s since produced a diverse array of albums, starred in several films, and powered through packed European and American tours alongside acts like Alison Krauss and Union Station, Emmy Lou Harris, and Ralph Stanley.

Organizer

Baton Rouge Blues Festival

Free and open to the public, the 2014 Baton Rouge Blues Festival will be held on April 12 from 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. in downtown Baton Rouge. Originating in 1981, the Baton Rouge Blues Festival is one of the oldest free blues festivals in America. Produced by the Baton Rouge Blues Foundation, the festival is made possible in part by the foundation board of directors, a volunteer Blues Festival Committee, partners and local support, as well as several generous sponsors. In order to keep the festival free, we appreciate your cooperation in supporting our vendors throughout the day and not bringing any outside food or drink.  All revenue generated from the festival goes towards the mission of the Blues Foundation to help continue its goal to promote, preserve and celebrate the "Swamp Blues" music native to Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
