Friday: Kirby Kelley --- Kelley is a Dallas, Texas based performer, with the rare ability to effortlessly delve into the musical wellsprings of either solo acoustic virtuosity or electric band settings with parallel prowess. His lengthy sets purvey the raw power and emotion drawn from his predecessors, while balancing on a frog’s hair line between the past and his own innate sense of the future of the blues. His skills as a slide guitarist set him apart, and are extracted from a myriad of influences that ultimately culminate into a rich gumbo of blues based musical soul food. Kirby excels as well at acoustic finger style Delta, Texas, and Piedmont Blues stylings; again, placing his own indelible stamp on the presentation of each. His soulful vocals are set deeply in the origins of the blues and are the perfect springboard for his virtuosity as a guitarist.
