Blue Lightning

Blue Lightning’s on a mission to create in-the-moment, rural blues. The traditions and spontaneous energy of Southern country blues masters, like Mississippi Fred McDowell, Lightnin’ Hopkins, Big Joe Williams and Sonny Terry, come alive in their music. Original song writing and arrangements keep it fresh. Blue Lightning is made up of Sam Gillis, hailing from Lafayette, Louisiana, on Dobro and acoustic guitar and Mad Dog Friedman, originally from the St. Louis area, on blues harp. Representing two generations of Colorado blues men, Sam Gillis & Mad Dog Friedman, seamlessly combine the new and the old with a passion that is all their own.
