The Great Waters Music Festival Wraps Up Their 24th Summer Season with Chris Thomas King

WOLFEBORO, NH, August 12, 2019 – Great Waters Music Festival (GWMF) is so grateful to host their season closer, Chris Thomas King. After an incredible season of talent and diverse genres, King brings the heart and authenticity of the blues on Sunday, August 25, 2019 at the Barn at the Inn on Main in Wolfeboro, NH at 7:30pm.

Born in 1962, guitarist Chris Thomas King became the last major folk blues discovery of the 20th Century when he was discovered in Louisiana in 1979 by a folklorist from the Smithsonian Institute in Washington D. C. He was introduced to the world the following year by venerable folk label Arhoolie Records as an authentic folk blues successor to Huddie Ledbetter, Muddy Waters, Mississippi John Hurt and Manse Lipscomb.

King played the role of itinerant bluesman Tommy Johnson alongside George Clooney in the movie “O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000),” captivating audiences all over the world. His authenticity as a folk blues artist, by any measure, proved to be undeniable. 

Take this opportunity to be captivated by King’s un-measurable, legitimate blues sound right in Wolfeboro. 

Director of the Great Waters Music Festival, Cheryll Andrews, commented, “Chris Thomas King is a perfect ending to our season. He truly embodies our mission of sharing art with communities.”

Tickets are only $30 and can easily be purchased online at www.greatwaters.org
