Christone “Kingfish” Ingram, whose current Alligator Records release 662 won the 2022 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Blues Album, will perform live in the United Kingdom June 8, June 9, July 28 and July 31, 2022. Ingram’s headlining tour, entitled “Christone “Kingfish” Ingram Presents 662: Juke Joint Live,” has already taken the 23-year-old guitarist, vocalist and songwriter across the U.S. and to Australia. In addition to his UK dates, Kingfish plays the Netherlands, France, Italy, Switzerland, Spain and Norway this summer.

Upon its July 2021 release, 662 debuted at #1 on the Billboard Blues Chart, and it’s remained on the chart ever since. NPR’s Morning Edition ran a 7-minute feature on release day. Buddy Guy called Kingfish “the next explosion of blues.” 662 was recorded in Nashville and co-written and produced by Grammy winner Tom Hambridge. It features 13 songs (and one previously released bonus track) displaying many sides of Ingram’s personality, as well as his one-of-a-kind guitar and vocal skills.


According to Ingram, “662 is an ode to my roots, a nod to the area where I was born and raised. The title track, 662, encompasses how a small corner of the earth influenced my view of life and music. It also points to the growth I have had since my debut album. As much as I have been fortunate to get ‘Outside Of This Town’ (the title of his breakout single from his 2019 Grammy-nominated debut album, Kingfish), I do want people to know that the ‘662’ will always be a major part of who I am.”


Since the release of his debut album, Kingfish, Ingram has quickly become the defining blues voice of his generation. From Clarksdale, Mississippi to stages around the world, the young musician has already headlined two national tours (Fish Grease I & II) and performed with friends including Vampire Weekend, Jason Isbell and Buddy Guy (with whom he appeared on Austin City Limits). He was interviewed by Sir Elton John on his Apple Music podcast Rocket Hour, and recently released songs with Bootsy Collins and Bobby Rush.
