Ticket Info: https://www.facebook.com/events/114802102437170/ Eric Deaton moved from North Carolina to Mississippi straight out of high school and entered a higher education program of moonshine-fueled hill country blues at the world-renowned Junior Kimbrough's juke joint in the mid to late '90's. Apprenticing under the late trance-blues masters Junior Kimbrough and R.L. Burnside (and various other members of their extended families), Eric was thoroughly immersed in the North Mississippi blues tradition. He played, lived and toured with other Mississippi blues artists such as T-Model Ford, Paul 'Wine' Jones, and Big Bad Smitty. Eric's sound is firmly rooted in the electric juke joint style, with dashes of influence from early Funkadelic, East Indian sitar drones, and a nod to the blues' West African roots.
