EBU Blues for Youth Program: Pinetop Perkins Workshop in Clarksdale

Five non-American young guys (on a total of 40 students) were in Clarksdale for the Pinetop Perkins Foundation Workshop and had great blues moments with their teachers, all great stars from the American Blues scene.

Two of them were supported by EBU, Will Hemy from UK and Evan Guenebault from France, both guitar players, and enjoyed the lessons and masterclasses with the great Steady Rollin’ Bob Margolin.

After 4 nights of jam sessions at Hopson Commissary, the final showcase took place at the famous Ground Zero Blues Club where all the students had the opportunity to show the results of this amazing workshop.

Thanks to all the teachers, Bob Margolin, Bob Stroger, Anthony Geraci, Fiona Boyes, Phil Wiggins, Heather Crosse, Lee Williams … and to Pat Morgan and all the Board at Pinetop Perkins Foundation.
