Fatback Soul Shack presents Blues Friday with BlacKingCoal on Friday, November 29, 2019.

BlacKingCoal filters American music through the coalfields and backwoods of West Virginia and then just throws it up in the air to see where it lands. Dirty blues. Bluegrass with a swing or growl. Country with a yell. Whatever. It's all just music. It has one purpose. To make you smile, jump up, clap, stomp and yell. Hopefully, if we do it right, all at once.

Led by Allan Dale Sizemore, founder of Appalachian Stompgrass pioneers Rust Kings and The Wild Rumpus, BlacKingCoal is well versed in American music. Having played festivals as diverse as Merlefest, The John Hartford Festival, The Lowell Folk Festival and BrewGrass as well as MANY others and every hole in the wall and kickin' nightclub from Maine to St. Louis, Michigan to Arkansas and all points in between, BlacKingCoal has just about seen or done it all. And survived. Barely, at times.

Allan's songs going from a 50s style rock and roll number to a country barroom to a city ballroom and back again, they all are tied together with a single rope. And sometimes, twine. American music.


Admission is free. Tips are encouraged for the musicians.
