Kid Andersen and John Blues Boyd

Kid Andersen is back again with John Boyd! musicians’ Great music and hijinks galore- everything we’ve all come to expect from his performances. A blues fan since childhood, Andersen fell in love with the music of Otis Rush, Buddy Guy, Junior Watson, and the Kings (B.B., Albert, and Freddie). By the time he was 18, he was backing all the American blues stars who came through Norway, including Homesick James, Nappy Brown, and Willie “Big Eyes” Smith. Kid Andersen is known as the guitarist for Rick Estrin & The Nightcats with 3 BMA Nominations for Guitarist of the Year. The virtuoso also is the man behind Greaseland Studios.
John “Blues” Boyd is a singer/songwriter with a voice that has been compared to the likes of Jeff Buckley and U2’s Bono. Born in Greenwood, Mississippi, Boyd picked cotton as a youngster, worked hard labor, and loved to sing. That’s when he became a bluesman full-time. Under the tutelage of Jim Pugh at Little Village Foundation, and with the production savvy of Kid Anderson from Greaseland Studios. As with many blues singers that came before him, John “Blues” Boyd, is a storyteller who lived an interesting life. He has certainly been there, done that, and now is enjoying the opportunity to sing his songs.
