Bluebirds hit Jazzfest, New Orleans, on Sun, Ap 29, sans slide guitarist-singer Buddy Flett
While the Bluebirds return to the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival on Sun, Ap 29, they do so without Buddy Flett.
"Buddy is doing so well on the Blues From the Backroads tour that they won't let him leave! He was in Atlanta last night at the Roxy.
He's got to finish out the tour this Fri 4/27 at Orlando House of Blues and Sat 4/28 in Tampa before he goes back on tour with the Bluebirds," explains Bruce Flett.
It will be Jason Coffield, Bruce Flett, and drummer Cody Lowery at Jazzfest this Sunday at 1 pm on the Lagniappe Stage. They'll be doing all Bluebirds originals, according to publicist Keith Abel. Coffield has picked up the vocals as well as slide guitar for the trio's complete repertoire.
Buddy's performance of Honky Tonk on the Kenny Wayne Shepherd 10 Days Out CD/DVD is currently #2 on XM Satellite Bluesville channel, says Buddy Flett. The tune was originally released on the Bluebirds Swamp Stomp CD.
Buddy's got a new album, Mississippi Sea, and his first website: myspace.com/buddyflett. His unoffical Mississippi Sea video is on Youtube and has picked up some 2,275 visits and 21 comments.
