Artist Spotlight: Guitar Lightnin’ Lee
inArtist Storyon June 15, 2016
Guitar Lightnin’ Lee exudes an indescribable exuberance. A couple weeks ago he came to visit NC to play for our Freight Train Blues Series presented by Carrboro Parks & Recreation & Music Maker Relief Foundation. It is always a treat to get to hang out with Lee. While here, we got to sit down and talk to Lee on camera, he regaled us with stories about hanging out with Boogie Bill, Little Freddie King and Jimmy Reed back in the day. The local radio station, WCHL scheduled an interview with Lee right to promote Freight Train Blues. Lee, being the pro that he is, nailed the interview. You can listen to the interview here. Tim Duffy, our Executive Director gave Lee an amazing Fender Stratocaster that was given to Music Maker by a generous donor.
