Christone 'Kingfish' Ingram

At the tender age of 6, Kingfish began playing the drums. Three years later at the age of 9, he took up the bass guitar. At the age of 11, he began playing lead guitar. By the age of 14, he had mastered all three instruments and has added vocals to his ever growing list of talents. Unlike many of his musical predecessors from Mississippi, Kingfish never had to pick cotton or sell his soul to the devil at the infamous Crossroads. Yet, this child prodigy’s soul is possessed with the feeling, passion and fire of the much older men who created the most important genre of American music, the Blues.

The purpose of the Delta Blues Museum’s Arts and Education Program is to continue the great musical tradition born in the Mississippi Delta: the Delta blues. The Arts and Education program teaches students to play music and keeps the history of the Delta blues alive. Students are taught to play the blues on the instrument or instruments of their choice. Instruments – drums, guitars, and keyboards – are provided by the museum for use in the classroom and authorized performances. However, we encourage students to purchase their own instruments.
