Ricky “King” Russell
August 24, 2013
Ricky “King” Russell is one of the Blues’ most seasoned performers and brightest talents. He is a multitalented performer-- guitarist/ vocalist/ songwriter and forty year veteran with a long list of credits and accomplishments. As one of New England’s preeminent Blues Masters, Ricky Russell has been entertaining audiences with his astounding technique and encyclopedic repertoire. Described as “The Kingpin of the Blues” by the Boston Globe, Ricky always delivers from the heart. Rick Russell has been gracing the SJ stage for quite some time now. Most recently, he has been part of the Smoken Joe’s Jerry Portnoy Trio residency--a wildly successful artist series in both November & March that returns this month. We feel lucky that he is a part of our amazing collective of artists.
