The Mississippi Queen's Birthday Southern Supper with Sugar Brown- November 1, 2017


Celebrate The Mississippi Queen's Birthday, and '46 Years on This Side of the Dirt', with the return, of Sugar Brown, to Mississippi Queen Foods. Sugar Brown is 'real deal', Mississippi 'juke joint' blues; Mississippi 'Hill Country' blues; and 'Chicago blues', rolled into one experience.
The birthday is on November 2nd, but we're gonna kick it off, the night of the 1st.

Sugar Brown is probably one of the most unqiue bluesman, you will come across. He's also known as Dr. Ken Kawashima, doctor of East Asian history, as well as a scholar of classic, blues music.

He's from the States, and he came about his rich experience in the blues, first-handed, by playing in a 'west side' Chicago, blues club, alongside many well known blues players, such as Willie 'Big Eyes' Smith, Dave Myers, and Taildragger (who is responsible for the nickname of 'Sugar Brown').
Sugar Brown's style of the blues will take you through the hill country of Mississippi, the west side of Chicago, as well as some early, blues days, in Texas.

In 2013, he was the Toronto Blues Society's Talent Search Winner, and you may have seen him play at the Kitchener Blues Festival, or at the Mariposa Folk Festival. 2016 nominated for 'Best Songwriter', Maple Blues Awards.

He'll be playing some original material, as well as covers from some noted, legendary players. His recent release, 'Poor Lazarus', was inspired by the folk song recordings of Alan and John Lomax, and I'm sure he'll have some copies, along with him, for this show.

This will be a duo act, with Sugar Brown on harmonica, and guitar, with his drummer, for two separate sittings, and Ya'll don't want to miss this one!

Our special menu for the evening, will be as follows.....

Blackened Chicken Fillets
Creole Red Beans & Rice with Pork Sausage, served over white rice
Coleslaw with Remoulade Dressing
Buttermilk Cornbread Muffins
Red Velvet Birthday Cupcakes
Iced Tea
Cafe du Monde Coffee & Chicory
