This young guy, son of Malian legend Ali Farka Toure, played a fantastic set at the Corner tonight. He shreds it with effortless ease. Here's a taste of him at The Lafayette International:

And this was six years ago!

I have been lucky to see three of the best young guitarists on the planet in the last 12 months - Bombino, Gary Clarke Jr and now Vieux Farka Toure. They've all paid their dues and they're all bringing something fresh and new to the form. It would be sensational to see them all showcased at next year's fest.

Hangin' out on Frenchmen

Dear Mr Pete,
I thought Gary Clarke Jnr at the Factory this year was brilliant.Really great guitar playing and amazing poise for somebody that young.
I hope that he will be at Bluesfest next year.Be sad if he is not.

When they go low-we go high.
