CHRIS THOMAS KING brings New Orleans Blues Fusion to Strand -- Tickets on Sale Now

Rockland, Maine - Grammy Award-winning blues artist, producer, composer and actor Chris Thomas King will appear on the Strand Theatre stage, 345 Main Street, on Saturday, May 27 at 7:30pm. Tickets are on sale now.

The multi-talented King has been known for his audacious fusion of blues and hip-hop, but the New Orleans born artist reached a whole new audience with the Coen Brothers film "O Brother, Where Art Thou?," not only appearing on the award-winning soundtrack but playing a prominent supporting character as well. Despite the much-celebrated, down-to-earth rootsiness of "O Brother's" music, King had previously been a determined progressive, hoping to reinvigorate the blues as a living African American art with a more contemporary approach and refusing to treat it as a museum piece whose "authentic" forms needed careful preservation.

Tickets are $20/Advance. $25/Door. Lobby and Balcony Bars will be open for age 21 and older. For more information, Tel: (207) 594-0070 EX 3  Email:
