EBF07 – Autumn 2010

 Friday Evening: Papa George

        

“There’s one! That’s what I say to myself when I meet a musician – anywhere – any age – who is a powerful Deep Blues player.  It happened again tonight – Papa George was playing solo and is a spectacular blues artist.  He’s got power and nuance, he’s a master entertainer and pure player.  I’ve become a big fan of his music.”        

Bob Margolin, February 2010
