HILL COUNTRY REVUE
9 p.m., Sticky Fingerz. $10 adv./$12 d.o.s.

In the tradition of foothill stomp tunes authenticated by the late Junior Kimbrough and R.L. Burnside comes Hill Country Revue, composed of North Mississippi Allstars members Cody Dickinson and Chris Chew, Burnside's son Garry on bass and Kirk Smithhart on vocals and guitar. Being R.L. Burnside's youngest son as well as Junior Kimbrough's protege, Garry is a walking encyclopedia of Mississippi hill country blues. He grew up playing with Kimbrough every Sunday night in Junior's world-famous juke joint and is known as a prolific songwriter and performer. Kirk Smithhart was awarded the Albert King Award for Best Guitarist by the Blues Foundation when he was only 19. Since then he has taken his cutting-edge style to music lovers all over the world. He grew up in the vibrant blues scene around Jackson, Miss., and has been turning heads in Memphis as the best new guitarist in town. Cody Dickinson and Chris Chew are three-time Grammy nominees with loyal fans all over the world, especially here in Little Rock. Expect HCR to fully integrate North Mississippi blues and a modern sound when they take the stage at Sticky Fingerz Saturday night.
