CEDRIC BURNSIDE   FRIDAY, APRIL 12   When comes to authentic, foot-stomping Hill Country Blues, there is no denying that Cedric Burnside is the real deal. The grandson and drummer for the late blues legend R.L. Burnside, Cedric himself is a two-time Grammy nominee and winner of five Blues Music Awards. This past year, Cedric released the album Benton County Relic, which received international acclaim and the Grammy nomination for Best Blues Album of the Year. Cedric is in the midst of a world tour this year where he swaps the duties of guitar and drums with collaborator Brian Jay. The live show is a two-piece jam session, but Cedric isn’t content with entertaining crowds with blues standards. He brings the blues alive for a new generation of fans weaned on the likes of White Stripes and the Black Keys. And why not? That’s all he’s ever known.
