Jun 21, 2023 | Blues News, Suncoast Blues Society

EG KIGHT, popularly known as “the Georgia Songbird” will be performing at the Palladium, Side Door this Friday at 8pm. Tickets are going fast so don’t hesitate. If you are a member of SBS, you will receive a $5 discount on your tickets.

Staring death in the face twice, and living to tell about it, is her own blues story. Fighting her way back to the stage made the music sweeter and the thrill of performing for live audiences more meaningful. One of the first shows the trio did was the Suncoast Blues Festival, and those of you that were in the audience that day will remember EG singing her heart out, ignoring the pain, while still recuperating from a vicious attack by neighborhood dogs. She is a trooper and she and “the boys” always put on an amazing show!

If you are not able to attend our SBS event on Friday, you can catch EG Kight Trio at Cottonmouth on Sunday at 6pm. DO NOT MISS – her version of Hallelujah will bring tears of joy to your eyes!

With her rich vocals, captivating guitar style, and hefty catalog of well-crafted original songs, she entertains audiences with her own unique blend of “country flavored southern fried blues”.  CityBeat Cincinnati writes that Kight is “a cross between Bonnie Raitt’s bourbon stung growl and Phoebe Snow’s emotive warble”.

EG has received 18 various music industry nominations including nine for Female Artist of the Year, three for Song of the Year, and four for Album of the Year. She has worked with many musicians, including George Jones, Jerry Lee Lewis, Conway Twitty, Merle Haggard, Luther Allison, Hubert Sumlin, Pinetop Perkins, Taj Mahal, B.B. King, and Koko Taylor.
