Blues guitarist Jarekus Singleton to meld rock energy and R&B grooves this Friday

At just 30 years old, Jarekus Singleton is a musical trailblazer with a bold vision for the future of the blues. Springing from the same Mississippi soil as Charley Patton, Muddy Waters and B.B. King, Singleton’s cutting-edge sound –equally rooted in rap, rock and blues traditions– is all his own.    

He melds hip-hop wordplay, rock energy and R&B grooves with contemporary and traditional blues, turning audiences of all ages into devoted fans. With his untamed guitar licks and strong, soulful voice effortlessly moving from ferocious and funky to slow and steamy to smoking hot, Singleton is a fresh, electrifying bluesman bursting at the seams with talent.

Doors to the theatre will open at 8 p.m., and the concert will begin at 9. All tickets cost $12, and they can be purchased from the Daily Grind, Woodall's Music or from
