Little Freddie King, Gotta Walk with Da King

Riding his bike through Hurricance Katrina waters to safety, Freddie doesn't just play the blues; he is the BLUES you've heard about and thought had been washed away. With the same band that's backed him for over a decade, this is rough and raw music while being laid back and easy at the same time. Though he has lived in New Orleans since his teens, King's playing and singing are unmistakably rooted in his native Mississippi Delta soil. He is eclectic but gritty and his thumb is always his pick, giving his guitar playing a powerful, thick sound. Despite his fierce reputation as "rough and tumble", back in the early days, he marvels at having become a blues elder.
