Growing up in a musical household in Mississippi, Jimbo Mathus absorbed the sounds of Blues, Country, Soul, Rock and Bluegrass. Those days left an indelible impression on Mathus and he remains a modern-day torch-bearer for Southern music, playing a self-described “Catfish Music for the Masses.” Known best for his days in the Squirrel Nut Zippers, Mathus now fronts Jimbo Mathus & The Tri-State Coalition. On Saturday, November 26, Mathus and his band will perform at Workplay. Showtime is 9 p.m. Mathus is currently touring in support of Confederate Buddha, a 12-track collection released earlier this year. As on previous releases, Confederate Buddha finds Mathus effortlessly melding several genres into his own style. Mathus will spend the rest of this year and the beginning of next year touring throughout the South and Southwest.
Tickets to the 18+ show are $10 – $12 day of the show – and can be purchased at www.workplay.com.
