Award-winning Mississippi bluesman Cedric Burnside released his new album Benton County Relic in September via Single Lock Records. He’s coming around to Pearl Street Warehouse to play those new songs on Thursday, Nov. 15.
Afropunk raved about single “We Made It” saying “It’s a song about strength, resilience, and hope that shows there’s a lot of life left in the classic country blues sound.” Billboard said “That sound on Benton County Relic…is spare, spacious and gritty but with a biting timeless flavor…”

“It can be hard for artists to let songs breathe. There’s something scary about letting a song do nothing, if only for a moment. Burnside is fearless in that regard, and it’s especially impressive since he recorded the album in just two days. The album has an intentional feel; the performances are all well thought-out. But there’s also a looseness to the album that makes it radiate with a live, unscripted energy. Burnside is masterful at knowing when to let a song do it’s thing,” said Steve Ovadia in Glide Magazine.
