"Chris Cain is often known as the musician's musician," Village Theatre officials said.

Cain's first album was released in 1987, with the most recent being his 2021 release "Raisin' Cain," which was the second-most played album of the year for Living Blues Radio, hitting No. 1 in both the United States and Australia.

Blues legends such as B.B. King, Albert King and Ray Charles were among Cain's sources of inspiration, according to Village Theatre officials.
