On March 17, 2018 I visited the Bluesgarage, Isernhagen DE to see again one of the best blues guitarists in the world, Kirk Fletcher. I met him firstly in summer 2017 when he performed at the Gaildorf Bluesfest. Here, at Bluesgarage, my favorite venue for this kind of music, I was even more convinced of his performance. He played in a trio with the phantastic drummer Matt Brown and the phenomenal only 18!!!!! years old keyboard player Simon Oslender from Germany.
Kirk Fletcher was born on December 23, 1975 in Bellflower, CA. He started his career with The Fabulous Thunderbirds and The Mannish Boys and played shows with many very famous artists, like Joe Bonamassa, Pinetop Perkins, James Cotton, Hubert Sumlin …. all over the world. Currently he is recording his new CD which is scheduled to be released in spring 2018.
Kirk has been nominated 4 times for the Blues Music Awards in Memphis as well as for the British Blues Award
