Big George Brock, also known as “King of the St. Louis Blues,” has been making his mark in the blues industry for nearly 70 years. A Mississippi native, Big George Brock spent his youth sharecropping, playing his harmonica, and traveling with blues legend Muddy Waters.

Since migrating to St. Louis in 1949, he has played with many other blues icons including Albert King, Little Milton and Jimmy Reed. Big George Brock also travels regularly back to Clarksdale, MS, to perform, with his nephew James “Super Chikan” Johnson, who headlined Cedarhurst’s Blues and Brews festival in 2016.

Seasonal brews from a partnering southern Illinois brewery will be on tap alongside domestic favorites, and food concessions available.
