Chris Thomas King is a Grammy award winning New Orleans musician and actor. One of the world’s greatest blues guitar players. Chris Thomas King is also a celebrated actor from Oscar winning movies O Brother, Where Art Thou and Ray.


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 1985 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.


Thirty years after becoming the last major folk blues discovery of the 20th Century, Chris Thomas King, whose career is a coda for the folk blues revival of the '60s, is today, one of the most important artists in the world for having changed the way we think of blues.
