Never miss another 'Buddy Whittington' show
"Buddy Whittington - Texas blues at its very best!
'...a master class in invention, arrangement, presentation and delivery. One of the true masters of electric blues on the scene today...' ~ Blues Matters
Buddy Whittington has been described by his ex-boss of 15 years as "possibly the greatest Bluesbreaker of them all". Considering that the boss is John Mayall and the "all" includes Eric Clapton, Peter Green and Mick Taylor, this is not an accolade to be taken lightly."
Info provided by the Event Organiser
Buddy Whittington is an American guitarist. He began playing the guitar inspired by his sister's records of The Beatles, Rolling Stones and, in particular, John Mayall's Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton. At the age of 14 he was already a part of the Dallas/Fort Worth music scene and playing regularly in the clubs along Jacksboro Highway. During the early 1980s, he formed and sang with his own band 'The Sidemen'. In 1991 they opened for John Mayall and when Coco Montoya left the Bluesbreakers in 1993, Mayall called him to take his place in the band. 2008 saw the release of his first solo album and tour in Europe with his UK-based band, Pete Stroud on Bass and Darby Todd on drums.
