E.G. Kight: Cancelled Until Further Notice

April 25, 2020  ·  Saturday * 8pm * $15 seated / $10 standing


EG Kight has emerged in recent years as a preeminent voice in roots music. CityBeat Cincinnati writes that she is “a cross between Bonnie Raitt’s bourbon stung growl and Phoebe Snow’s emotive warble.” And the Sarasota Herald-Tribune stated that Kight is “one of the blues’ most respected vocalists.”

Kight has received various music industry nominations, including six for Female Artist of the Year, three for Song of the Year, and one for Album of the Year. With her rich vocals, well-crafted songs, and inimitable sense of humor, her stage show appeals to listeners of all ages, no matter their taste. And for several decades she has brought her eclectic musical mix to various clubs, theaters, festivals, and corporate events, even appearing on such mainstays as Nashville Now and NPR’s “A Prairie Home Companion.”

Kight has worked shows with artists across the genres, including Gregg Allman, Phoebe Snow, Merle Haggard, Koko Taylor, Little Feat, Lee Roy Parnell, B.B. King, and Delbert McClinton.

Her songs have appeared on four major TV networks, including NBC’s “Chicago PD.” And she placed five songs in a movie that is available on Amazon Prime.

Kight’s live show is 80% original songs, and some cover tunes. And sometimes, she might even take requests. She engages the audience with true southern hospitality and steals their hearts like a first love, leaving them feeling like they’ve just walked down a country road with an old friend. Audiences walk away with one clear thing in mind – this isn’t just what she does, it’s who she is.

Georgia Music Magazine sums it up – “Kight is a gentle and elegant woman who manages to channel Southern charm, sophistication and a fierce passion for music into one tremendously intoxicating voice.”
