New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ PLA Media) EG Kight, known to many as "The Georgia Songbird," heads north to bring her blend of country flavored southern fried blues to North Carolina where she will be featured at Greensboro's 26th Annual Carolina Blues Festival on Saturday, May 19. Surrounding the event, EG will extend her North Carolina stint at the Blue Note Grill in Durham on May 16, before stopping in Wilmington on May 17 to appear at The Rusty Nail.
The Blue Note Grill, known for its barbeque and blues, is a priority on EG's list of places to play when traveling through North Carolina. "I love it when I find a venue that is enthusiastic about sharing the blues," said EG. "The barbeque doesn't hurt either." With a capacity of 100, The Rusty Nail is also a humble home for the blues.
While continuing to promote her fifth studio album, "Lip Service," EG will intrigue blues fans in North Carolina with her mixture of Americana, blues, rock, soul and pop style of music.
Proving how deep her talents run, EG recently produced folk singer/songwriter Lisa Biales album, "Just Like Honey." Not only did EG co-write a number of the songs with Lisa on the album, she also served as a guest musician.
Noted for her breathtaking voice, this life-long, multi-talented performer hails from the town of Dublin in rural Georgia. She still lives on the land that's been in her family for four generations, proving just how deep her southern roots really stretch. With vocal skills that have earned her comparisons to the likes of Phoebe Snow, Bonnie Raitt, Koko Taylor and even Patsy Cline, albeit with a bit more edge, her music attracts fans of many different genres and her skills on the six-string are more than impressive, making this powerhouse a talent to be reckoned with!
The lineup of acts playing the Carolina Blues Festival includes Smokin' Joe Kubek and Bnois King, Eric Gales, Mel Melton & the Wicked Mojos, House of Dues, and T.A. James. Held under the "big tent" at Festival Park in Downtown Greensboro, the outdoor festival will be a great way to spend a spring Saturday in North Carolina. Gates will open at 1:00 PM and the blues will begin at 2:00 PM rain or shine!
Tickets for the Carolina Blues Festival are $20 in advance or $30 at the gate. To purchase them or to get more information, go to the website, www.piedmontblues.org, or call 336-333-2605. The grounds are located at North Davie Street, Greensboro, North Carolina 27401.
