Grammy Award-winning Bluesman Chris Thomas King is probably best known for his role in the Coen Brothers’ classic film “O Brother, Where Art Thou,” but he’s been building a considerable fan base in Nippertown with his recent concerts at WAMC-FM’s The Linda in Albany.

Sponsored by the Capital Regional Blues Network for his second annual Local 518 performance, King returned to The Linda stage to serve up a solid batch of the blues, displaying his skills on both guitar and piano.
