Chris Cain (g, piano, voc) at Freddy’s Bar in Frederikshavn DK on 2019-01-11. Great show with an artist who’s name I didn’t know before this evening. One big new discovery for me during Bluesheaven Bluesfestival in Denmark. He was accompanied by Sky Garcia (dr), Steve Evans (b) and
Greg Rahn (keys).
Chris Cain was born 1955-11-19 in San Jose, California, United States. Cain received four Blues Music Award nominations in 1987 for his debut album “Late Night City Blues“ including Guitar Playerof the Year. 2018 brought more nominations, including Blues Music Awards Guitarist of the Year, Blues Blast Awards Best Males Blues Artist and Best Contemporary Blues Album for the 2017 release “Chris Cain”.
His amazing lead guitar and powerful vocals have brought him international recognition. If you listen to him you can hear that he is heavily influenced by B. B. King, Albert King and other various guitar players.
