Blues guitarist Quinn Sullivan just turned 14 years old today, and he’s already well on his way in establishing himself on the blues scene. He’s enjoyed the national spotlight with appearances on Ellen, Oprah and the Today Show and has the full backing of his idol Buddy Guy.
“You don’t come across talent like this every day … people called Ray Charles a genius, I think you got another one here,” Guy said of Sullivan during an interview with PBS.
Sullivan has made history by being one of the youngest artists to play the MONTREUX JAZZ FESTIVAL, along with Guy and Van Morrison, and he is set to perform this April at Eric Clapton’s Guitar Festival at Madison Square Garden.
See what all the fuss is about in the two exclusive Fender Airstream performances below as Sullivan and his producer Tom Hambridge perform “Sweet Guitar” and “Getting There.”
