The Future of Blues Is in Good Hands: Watch 12-Year-Old Toby Lee Trade Riffs with Chicago Blues Guitarist Ronnie Baker Brooks

 

Earlier this year, we highlighted some footage from 1989, showing then 12-year-old Joe Bonamassa wowing crowds and announcing his arrival on the blues scene. Years from now, we might look back in similar fashion at this footage of 12-year-old blues prodigy Toby Lee. Recorded last month at the Blues Heaven Festival in Denmark, this video features Lee trading riffs with Chicago blues guitarist Ronnie Baker Brooks. It runs a good five minutes--enough to convince you that the future of the blues is in good hands.

By the way, Toby has a Youtube channel where you can watch him evolve as a musician. Below, see one of his earlier clips, where, as a 9 or 10-year-old, he pounds out some Stevie Ray Vaughan in a cowboy hat and tiger suit.
