Buddy Guy bring the blues to the people, 7/11/2012
Hudson Blues Fest 2012

Nothing says the blues like the World Financial Center, in the heart of Battery Park City, with massive VIP pens of suits and their female equivalents…

You don’t need me to tell you really how this gig went. What can I tell you about Buddy Guy and John Mayall? These are padres of respective kinds of the blues. This is major historical legendary territory. Who am I to wax any kind of authoritative narrative about these men and what they do? I can tell you a little bit about Quinn Sullivan – 13 years old and plays the blues guitar (and the git in general) like another Kenny Wayne or D. Trucks. We can say we saw him when…I hope. Oh I can tell you one thing about Mr. Guy, who I think is still soloing on “Hootchie Cootchie Man” as I write this the next day (I am making that up): he had to sass the crowd for not even being with it to shout “son of a gun” during this top 5 blues classic. “I played India 3 weeks ago,” he said, “and they didn’t fuck it up as bad as you”, he told the crowd. -[Sonic Parthenon]

Buddy Guy would eventually jam with the 13-year-old prodigy to end an evening of blues at World Financial Center last night (7/11), the first of the two-night Lowdown Hudson Blues Festival. Pictures of Buddy Guy, John Mayall, and Quinn Sullivan are are in this post.

As mentioned, the free festival continues tonight (7/12) with appearances from Neko Case, Charles Bradley and the Extraordinaires and He’s My Brother, She’s My Sister.
