Cedric Burnside returns to Charlotte tonight (Dec. 30)
CEDRIC BURNSIDE PROJECT Long-established guitarist, drummer and vocalist Cedric Burnside, who learned the craft of blues playing alongside his grandfather R.L. Burnside, leads his latest combo that fires up the amps with a mix of slow-burning acoustic to rousing hill-country blues. A bit of blues-rap is also in the offing. The band is on the road plugging the new recording The Way I Am. $10. Double Door Inn. www.doubledoorinn.com.
