Cedric Burnside on continuing the legacy of Hill Country Blues

Cedric Burnside started touring when he was just 13 years old. His grandfather, R.L. Burnside, helped create the unique sound of Mississippi Hill Country Blues and Cedric has embraced that legacy. He's been recognized as one of the best Blues musicians in America several times over. Mississippi is where American music was born, but many of its creators never reaped the financial rewards that others would find using their sound. On this episode of the Reckon Interview, Cedric discusses his latest album "I Be Trying," as well as what keeps him rooted in Mississippi and why he's so committed to carrying on the family tradition.


All the music included in the episode is from "I Be Trying," produced by Single Lock Records. You can purchase the album and find Cedric Burnside's upcoming tour dates at www.cedricburnside.net.
