Pilgrimage Artist | Kingfish
Stage & Time | Saturday | TBA
By now, you’ve surely heard about the inaugural Pilgrimage Festival, set to take place Sept. 26 & 27 at The Park at Harlinsdale, right down the road in lovely Franklin, TN. Committed to providing community-focused, all ages entertainment, and boasting an impressive lineup of both national and regional talent, Pilgrimage already seems to be setting its roots for what we hope and expect to be many years of success to come. As we’ve done in the past for Bonnaroo, and in what seems like an appropriate move, given that Pilgrimage is now the closest full-scale rock-geared fest we have, we’re going to preview this year’s lineup with daily artist spotlights, all leading up to what’s sure to be an unforgettable weekend! Be sure to grab your tickets here, and keep reading for our Pilgrimage Band of the Day…
At barely 16 years old, Christone Ingram, who goes by the stage name Kingfish, is a musical prodigy by every metric. Born and raised in the Mississippi delta, the region famous for spawning the style of music Kingfish has already mastered while most of his peers are just learning to drive, the talented artist, exposed to a healthy diet of gospel and blues from birth, began playing drums at age six, moving on to bass at nine and guitar at 11. By the time he hit his teens, Kingfish had added singing and composing original songs to his repertoire, and had already become a certifiable master of his craft. A technical virtuoso, with a soulful, timeless voice, and an understanding of the blues many other artists work their whole lives to achieve, Kingfish has already performed at the White House, toured in Europe, and opened for artists like Buddy Guy. He’s an undeniable legend in the making, and certainly proves Pilgrimage’s commitment to curating the most exciting up and coming talent. Check out some original tunes below to see what this young blues rocker has in store!
