Blog #304-Elvin Bishop at the Wilson Center Guitar Festival 2018

September 3, 2018

The Wilson Center here in Brookfield, Wisconsin has an annual guitar festival. There is a lot happenig both outside and inside the Wilson Center. The photo of this little girl having fun is cute I think! She was listening to the band outside and having fun.

This year for the main act, the Elvin Bishop Big Fun Trio performed to a full house.

I've photographed and met Elvin a few times since 1977.  Always a great show and an amazing guitar player. Could listen to his stories and slide guitar forever!

The Big Fun Trio consists of Elvin, Bob Welsh and Willy Jordan.

Bob Welsh played both keyboards and guitar. Not sure which he is better at but his guitar playing is awesome!

Willy Jordan hand played a Peruvian drumbox and it was a great sound to hear. Who needs a drum set with this talented guy!

Enjoy some photos of a great night at a beautiful festival just a couple of miles from my home!
