Chris Thomas King is legend on the Blues Circuit. While some think he got his start as a star in the movie "Oh Brother Where Art Thou," he was actually a child prodigy on the guitar and parlayed his early talents into a successful band and recording contracts. Those have resulted in "Album of the Year" Award from the Gramys and the Country Music Awards. He has sold more than 10 million Albums and is a legend in the Blues/Country scene. Raleigh is very fortunate to have a musician of this caliber performing This Friday at the Berkeley Cafe. (Photo Courtesy of the Blues Nexus)
