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.

Touring the US supporting ZZ Top for their 1995 ‘Antenna’ World Tour, and  playing alongside Eric Clapton and Mick Taylor in 2003 for John’s 70th Birthday Concert at The King’s Dock Arena in Liverpool stand out as definite high points of Buddy’s tenure as a Bluesbreaker. Now signed to UK label Manhaton Records, Buddy is still lighting up venues across the world.

His latest solo album Six String Svengali, received widespread critical acclaim:

‘The album is an example of what Texas Blues 2011 sounds like and a damn fine addition to any comprehensive record collection’ Blues Matters ‘Prime cuts of Texas blues brought to life by a true craftsman’ ~ Guitar & Bass Mag.

Simply unmissable.
