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.
