Murali Coryell to perform at Delta Blue this weekend

LAKE PLACID – Murali Coryell will perform from 9 p.m. to midnight Friday and Saturday at Delta Blue.

As part of the continuing blues programming at Delta Blue, Shake-it-Sugar Records recording artist Coryell will be joining the incomparable Delta Blues lineup of bands.

Coryell is a triple threat contemporary blues artist who can sing, write, and play guitar. As the son of guitar legend Larry Coryell, Murali grew up around the likes of Jimmy Hendrix, Miles Davis and Carlos Santana.

In 1995, Coryell joined Duke Robillard’s touring band and was quickly signed as a solo artist resulting in the stax/volt influenced “Eyes Wide Open.” In 1999, Murali recorded “2120” for Marshall Chess for which Rolling Stone named Murali “One promising new hound.”

Over the years, Coryell toured with his father, Larry Coryell, and Joe Louis Walker as a featured artist and appeared many times as a supporting act for B.B. King. “Murali’s latest CD, “Sugar Lips” which reached #5 in 2010 on Living Blues Radio Chart, was recorded in Nashville with Tom Hambridge, the producer of Buddy Guy’s latest Grammy winner. Featuring special guest stars Joe Louis Walker and Larry Coryell, Cortney Harding of Billboard called it “one sweet triptych across the musical map”. The CD received rave reviews in Living Blues and Elmore Magazines and also resulted in a Murali Coryell feature in Guitar Player Magazine. Internet music listeners can hear the Murali Coryell channel on Pandora. The official website is
