Junior Kimbrough (born David Kimbrough in Hudsonville, Mississippi, July 28, 1930; d. Holly Springs, Mississippi, January 17, 1998) was an American bluesman from Mississippi most notable for his recorded output in the 1990s. Kimbrough lived in the North Mississippi Hill Country around Holly Springs. He recorded for the Fat Possum Records label, beginning in his sixties. His style of modern electric blues was marked by its hypnotic modal guitar rhythms, backwoods singing style and nocturnal lyrics. He often collaborated with members of fellow Mississippi bluesman R.L. Burnside's family.
