    Big fan here. I saw him open for Umphrey's McGee a couple of years ago and he was amazing. He later came back through town for a headline show and saw him again right up close to the stage. Agree, the kid is an amazing talent.

    Have we covered this kid yet?

    I don't like country music, but I don't mean to denigrate those who do. And for the people who like country music, denigrate means 'put down.'- Bob Newhart

    The thread's a few years old so maybe I already replied but I dig the gnarly Mississippi Hill Country guys like RL Burnside and Junior Kimbrough.



    Great documentary about the genre:

    I saw Tommy Castro and Tinsley Ellis TNT tour last week. I was able to get right up near the stage to see both of them up close. I like Tommy better than Tinsley, but they were both great. Ellis plays a more ragged style. He actually kind of reminds me of Neil Young with some of his guitar solos. Castro is smoother, with more of a soul influence. They both did solo sets, then came out and jammed with each other at the end. If you like blues and this tour is coming to your town, it is a great show.
