Jesse Cotton Stone creates a comprehensive scope of the Original American Music, not only by playing his role in keeping the traditions of Blues music alive, but also by contributing to the evolution of this Storytelling Tradition with his own Original Flavor of what he calls "Hell Country Blues", which he delivers live on stage with the utmost showmanship of a true entertainer.
“"... Jesse Cotton Stone is ON FIRE!! We are proud to feature him in our film 'The Blues Trail Revisited'! Jesse's childhood roots in a traveling carny family gave him a sense of street theater early on, and it’s made his current incarnation as a blues guitarist and vocalist a joy to see, both on stage and on the streets of Clarksdale, Mississippi during the Juke Joint Festival. His high-energy and funk-laden riffs move audiences wherever he plays, and the late-night into early morning jams he sits in on are always kicked up several notches, no matter who else is on stage or the hour."” - Ted Reed
