Art of Wine Proudly presents two-time Grammy Award nominated artist Cedric Burnside
The annual Art of Wine event returns with great wine and great music! In recent years, the Carmel Arts & Design District has hosted popular bands such as Judah & The Lion and St. Paul and The Broken Bones. This year’s entertainment headliner is two—time Grammy nominated blues artist, Cedric Burnside.
Burnside has been named the 2019 “Drummer of the Year” by the Blues Music Awards and received this same award four times in the past eight years. He is an American blues drummer, guitarist, singer and songwriter from Holly Springs, Mississippi.
His grandfather, R. L. Burnside, raised and shaped Burnside into the artist he is today. It was Burnside’s grandfather who taught him to play the drums and by the time he was 13, Burnside was on tour with his grandfather’s band.
Burnside’s appearance at Art of Wine on July 20, 2019 comes during his international music tour. After enjoying his authentic rhythm and groove in the District, music fans can follow is tour to festivals like Newport Folk Festival (Newport, R.I., July 26), Calgary Folk Festival (Canada, July 27) and Moon River Music Festival (Chattanooga, Tenn., Sept. 8)
