The blues is music for all time – past, present, and future – and few artists simultaneously exemplify those multiple temporal moments of the genre like North Mississippi´s Cedric Burnside. The Mississippi Hill Country blues guitarist and singer/songwriter contains within him the legacy and future of the region´s prescient sound stories. At once African and American and southern and Mississippian, these stories tell about love, hurt, connection, and redemption in the South. His most recent contribution to this tradition is 2022´s Grammy-winning Best Traditional Blues Album, I Be Trying, a 13-track treatise on life´s challenges, pleasures, and beauty.
