Born and raised near Holly Springs, Mississippi, Cedric Burnside,
grandson of legendary R.L. Burnside and son of drummer Calvin Jackson,
 has been playing music for his entire life. This seven-time winner of the 
prestigious Blues Music Award’s Drummer of the Year is widely regarded
 as one of the best drummers in the world and has begun to make a name
 for himself as a traditional blues guitarist, as well. Cedric Burnside Project’s
 latest album, Descendants of Hill Country, was released in 2015 and was nominated for a GRAMMY for Best Blues Album of the Year.  
Students are invited to join us in the Sanders Soundstage for a performance
 and discussion of Burnside’s career. This workshop is being held in celebration
 of National Drumming Day and is recommended for grades 6+.
