The cousin of Lightnin’ Hopkins, King learned guitar from his father, but in 1954 moved to New Orleans at the age of 14. He played in many juke joints with his friends Babe Stovall, Slim Harpo, and Champion Jack Dupree, playing both acoustic and electric guitar. He recorded an electric blues album with Harmonica Williams in 1969. In 1976, King undertook a European tour alongside Bo Diddley and John Lee Hooker. His next recording opportunity came some twenty seven years after his first in 1996, with the release of Swamp Boogie. King’s Sing Sang Sung (2000) was recorded live at the Dream Palace in Faubourg Marigny. King played the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival for 32 consecutive years.
