~ FRED VINE ~
Fred Vine, http://www.fredvine.com/ is a singer and fingerstyle guitarist. He's also a master of "Piedmont" style and Delta bottleneck slide guitar. His versatile guitar repertoire is rich with traditional blues, compelling instrumentals and captivating songs.
Fred tells us that he'll be bringing son Alex as a guest and co-conspirator, and we recall from last year's show, they're great.
Fred and Alex include acoustic blues, jazz, original compositions, American Songbook and contemporary songs.
Fred's influences are rooted in bluesmen Rev. Gary Davis, Robert Johnson, Son House, Mississippi John Hurt, Jelly Roll Morton and certainly Chet Atkins.
Fred has several recordings to his credit. "Mister Freddy Blues" (a compendium of roots blues), "Crystal River Blues" (a mixed bag of jazz, blues and contemporary), "Cruising on the Belle" and "Genesee Delta Stomp", which showcases Fred's original music. As a seasoned performer, Fred has shared the stage with Muddy Waters, John Hammond, Guy Davis, Dave Van Ronk and many others.
