World-touring acoustic blues pioneer CATFISH KEITH presents his 19th album, BLUES AT MIDNIGHT, an album of some of the best of his original songs, written over his 40-year career.
Catfish says, “A big part of my life since the beginning has been digging in the treasure trove and finding inspiration in the places where it all started. My own songs are in the spirit of heroes from the first generation of blues and roots music. You will hear echoes of Jessie Mae Hemphill, Johnny Shines, Lonnie Johnson, Blind Blake, Joseph Spence, and so many others. These songs are all my own, yet straight out this beautiful tradition. I am very proud of this record!”
