    Ever Heard of Ryan McGarvey?

    Went and saw Ryan McGarvey Friday night at a summer concert series event at the ABQ zoo. He's a local kid, 26 years old, who is taking the blues world by storm. He's back in town for a few gigs following a long European tour. He's got some serious playing chops, and a lot of maturity in his style.

    May go catch him at an indoor venue Saturday night, and I'm already planning to go see him a week from Saturday with a friend of mine.

    He's really good. Sounds like a lot of Joe Bonamassa influence in his sound.

    Agreed. A friend of mine who knows Ryan told me last night that Ryan and Joe know each other, and Ryan has definitely been influenced by Joe. I could also hear Eric Johnson influences in his playing last night, too, particularly in some of the tones he pulled out of the guitar.

    Worth the trip to see him if he ever appears in Toronto.
    Cheers,
