ShannonKirk Fletcher - "Shades of Blue"Kirk Fletcher - "Shades of Blue"
{2004 | Delta Groove Productions}

Kirk Fletcher got his start in the San Francisco bay area a few years ago by joining in with Kim Wilson's Blues Revue. Since that time he had opportunities playing with Charlie Musslewhite, Lynwood Slim, and Junior Watson-all of west coast blues fame. Kirk is a young, passionate guitar player with a soul that is fixated in the blues decade of the 50's & 60's; which is right up my alley! This guy has huge potential to become one of the brightest stars of a young generation of blues players. Look for much more positive things to come from Kirk in the future. "Shades of Blue" is his first release on the Groove Productions label. Special guests on this disc include Kim Wilson, Finis Tasby, and Janiva Magness.
