Mississippi born Kingfish is only 23-years-old but has already had a Grammy nomination for his debut album, headlined two national tours and collaborated with some of the greatest musicians of all time including Sir Elton John. Kingfish is bringing his show to Newcastle in the hope to introduce a new, young audience to the genre of blues music.

Kingfish is known for his dynamic personality, alongside his one-of-a-kind guitar and vocal skills, making the young star a triple threat in the music industry. Kingfish lost his mother Princess Pride Ingram at the beginning of his career, and he channelled the emotional heartbreak into his music. His brand new album 662 (named after his home telephone area code) is a more personal insight into who Kingfish is as not only a musician but as a person too. Rolling Stone said of Kingfish: “Kingfish is one of the most exciting young guitarists in years, with a sound that encompasses B.B. King, Jimi Hendrix and Prince.”

The Kingfish 2022 tour kicked off in Sheffield and will arrive in Newcastle on Wednesday. Tickets are £27.50 and you can purchase them here.
