This week I thought I would talk about Mr. Sipp, the Mississippi Blues Child! Mr. Sipp will be performing on Friday June 10th.
Mr. Sipp, “The Mississippi Blues Child,” is the alter ego of gospel guitarist Castro Coleman. One of the hottest new names in the blues world, Mr. Sipp made his debut on Malaco Records in 2015.
He began playing the guitar at the tender age of 6. Through hard work and perseverance, Mr. Sipp has become a Delta Blues Force to be reckoned with! Being recognized for his amazing vocals, songwriting ability, musicianship, ability to produce records and entertain Fans with an upbeat, outlandish show all make Mr. Sipp “The Total Package.”
Mr. Sipp is the 2014 International Blues Challenge Winner by way of The Vicksburg Blues Society as well as the 2014 Gibson Best Guitarist Award Winner. The same year Castro was given the Bobby Rush Entertainer of the Year Award by the Jus’ Blues Foundation. In 2015, he won several Jackson Music Awards including International Male Blues Artist, Blues Artist of the Year, and Entertainer of the year.
He was the BMA Best New Artist Album winner 2016 and The Spirit of Little Walter Award 2016.For the 25th Annual Living Blues Awards, he won the Best Blues Album of 2017 New Recordings award (Contemporary Blues) with “Knock a Hole In It”, and in 2018 he won the National Blues Artist of The Year award at 44th Annual Jackson Music Awards.
And this year the Blues Foundation has nominated him for Best Contemporary Male Blues Artist AND B.B. King Entertainer of the year. We’ll know in May if he wins!
Seriously if you don’t know who Mr. Sipp is, take a listen to the songs I’ve added to the email, and I know you’ll fall in love with him!
Until next week…
