Today I am posting a video and then some audio files. This was posted by a friend on Facebook yesterday and I just had to share.

The young lad's name is Derek Trucks. This is from 1993 when he was 13 years old.

He is the nephew of Allman Brothers Band drummer Butch Trucks. He was considered a guitar prodigy at NINE years old. He leads his own band; The Derek Trucks Band, plays with his wife Susan Tedeschi and he is also one of the two guitarists for The Allman Brothers Band.

This is some brilliant stuff from the kid, from 1993 when he was opening for the Allman Brothers Band.

Yes, that is a Duane Allman t-shirt Derek is wearing...hell, the kid is practically channeling Duane...


Now four audio files:
1: with Susan with their rendition of the song "Hey Jude"
2: Derek Trucks Band "Every Good Boy"
3: Allman Brothers Band "Soulshine"
4: with Susan on the Robert Johnson classic "Walking Blues"

  2. Fantastic set - I've seen Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi a couple times now and they are amazing, both idividually and as a team. They are regulars at the Harvest Blues and Jazz Festival near here. I know it can't compare to what you get in Memphis, but we do get some amazing acts ...

  3. CiCi Says:
  4. Oh yeah, Derek is awesome.

  5. Jay Says:
  6. He's okay.

    Ha! Kidding.

    Have a great weekend Vinster.

  7. Linda Says:
  8. Wow! Can you imagine having that kind of talent at age 13 never mind when you're older?

  9. If you don't believe things like musical talent are somewhat genetic, just watch this video.

    Keep watching it until you believe.

    Great selections, Vinny.

  10. Travis Cody Says:
  11. Obviously the playing is impressive, but what struck me most in the video was that he just played without a lot of motion. That's the confidence of a virtuoso talent.

    I love to watch a master play without a lot of show.
