The Kimbrough Brothers
The Kimbrough Brothers are the sons of the great blues legend David “Junior” Kimbrough and have been continuing his musical legacy for decades.
All three grew up in Junior’s famous juke joints and specialize in a distinct style of blues created by Junior Kimbrough called Cotton Patch Soul Blues.
The Kimbrough Brothers began creating music together years ago with David Kimbrough Jr. on guitar, Robert Kimbrough Sr. on bass and Kinney Kimbrough on drums.
They have played many of the country’s biggest festivals and blues venues. They also have their own festival called The Kimbrough Cotton Patch Soul Blues Festival that just celebrated its sixth year.
Sadly, in early 2020, David Kimbrough Jr. passed, and the surviving brothers have chosen to carry forward as a duo [bass & drums] in honor of David’s memory.
The Kimbrough brothers have countless musical releases as individuals with Robert Kimbrough Sr. winning Artists Musicians Guild’s Album of the Year and Kinney Kimbrough playing drums on Hank Williams Jr’s new Black Keys release just to name a few.
The Kimbrough Brothers reside in Holly Springs, Mississippi which has been their family’s stomping ground going back before Junior’s famous Juke Joints which are featured in multiple movies including Deep Blues and You See Me Laughing.
Robert and Kinney continue this rich musical legacy and love sharing the Cotton Patch Soul Blues.
