In all honesty I did not know who Buddy Guy was when we were asked by Kath Raber to video Rarearth Jazz and Blues Festival in Vernon.
We couldn't know that we would meet Grammy award winning guitarist Buddy Guy at the airport, or that we would end up giving Buddy Guy and Max a ride to their hotel in our car.
Kath Raber is a singer, songwriter and promoter who works tirelessly to put on the Rarearth Jazz and Blues Fest in Vernon BC, Attracting some of the best local, national and international talent.
This year Kath is expanding the Rarearth Festival to 3 days with more music then ever. Check out the Web site and get ready to see amazing talent. I can not wait to see who we meet this year.
Buddy Guy is perhaps the greatest living exponent of classic Chicago electric blues. He is a thrillingly inventive guitarist, a passionately soulful singer and a peerless showman. In the course of a decades-long professional career, he has sold more than 2 million albums, earned five Grammy® Awards and 24 W.C. Handy Blues Awards—more than any other single artist.

George Buddy Guy was born July 30, 1936, in Lettsworth, La. I was so far out in the country, man," he once said. "We didnt have running water, no electric lights, no radio, and I didnt know nothing about no electric guitar. We used to get the catalogs, like from Sears, and thats how our mother would order our clothes. Didnt have no stores there to buy clothes from."

Today, Guy is an internationally celebrated symbol of the living blues. Owner of Chicago nightclub Buddy Guys Legends, he continues to tour worldwide, and he has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum im Cleveland, Ohio.
