October 01, 2016 at 7pm


Harmonica virtuoso and blues singer Grady Champion captivates audiences with his energetic live performances.

Born in Canton, Miss. as the youngest of his father’s 28 children, Champion first discovered his passion for music in church choir. In the early 1990s—after a brief career as a rapper—Champion worked for FJH Music under Frank J. Hackinson, former president of Columbia Pictures. In 1998, after learning to play the harmonica, Champion released his first album, Goin’ Back Home.

After winning the 26th International Blues Challenge in 2010, Champion performed at the Chicago Blues Festival, on the Legendary Blues Cruise and at the Portland Waterfront Blues Festival. Since then, he has continued to collect accolades, including a Blues Critics Award in the Best Down Home Blues Song category for his song “Make That Monkey Jump.” Champion’s newest album, One of a Kind, will be released on Malaco Records in June 2016.
