Kent Sheridan & Yazoo Delta

The Yazoo Mississippi Delta is an area in the United States thought to be where The Blues and Rock and Roll originated, with musicians from that area moving on to Chicago and St. Louis where the Blues continued to transform. Yazoo Delta is a group of musicians from the southern Ontario area who have played together for years and with other bands and solo artists but still, share a mutual love of Blues, Southern Rock and Bluegrass. Their approach to the songs they play is to take something familiar and rethink it a little with a Delta, sometimes bluegrass feel.

Singer Kent Sheridan (who has appeared at the Capitol in Singin in the Rain, Mamma Mia, Fiddler on the Roof, and The Little Mermaid), Guitarist Mitch Hurst (guitar), his brother Shawn Hurst (bass, vocals), wife Kim hurst (vocals), Ken Campbell (guitar and slide guitar), and Ty Callan (Cajon), are excited to be a part of the Events this summer at the Historic Capitol Theatre.
