Hear Blues Savior Christone ‘Kingfish’ Ingram Duet With Buddy Guy on ‘Fresh Out’

The first released track from Kingfish’s debut album features a guitar duel with Buddy Guy

Christone “Kingfish” Ingram, the 20-year-old blues prodigy from Clarksdale, Mississippi who made Rolling Stone’s Hot List last year, is already having a big 2019: He just signed to Alligator Records, with his first album, Kingfish, due in May. He’s also opening for one of his mentors, Buddy Guy, this spring, and he’s spending August and September reaching a very different audience on the road with Vampire Weekend.

Guy joins Ingram on “Fresh Out,” a powerhouse slow blues from Kingfish, with the younger man (a self-proclaimed “old soul”) holding his own on guitar against Guy, who released his first single back in 1958. “For my first record, I wanted to come out and give what I was known for in the beginning,” Ingram told Rolling Stone, “which was traditional blues.”
