Papa George & Friends
After jamming with Papa George at the FVG Festival Italy 2010, Muddy Water’s guitarist, Bob Margolin, quoted “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 in Brugnera, Italy. On the show was Papa George, from London. 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”. For over 30 years of extensive live performances, Papa George continues to play and sing the blues with true passion, heart and soul. Monica Dupont has nominated Papa George for induction into the Blues Hall of Fame.
