Buy ACOUSTIC BLUES SUMMIT

Every review of an album one has been a part of is a gift, even when it's critical. Positive reviews are, of course, even more wonderful than that. Personally, reviews that come from creative artists are some of the most special of all, and to receive such a positive one from a poet I admire so profoundly is one of the greatest gifts of all. Thank you to the poet Robert Lavett Smith for his wonderful review of "Acoustic Blues Summit" featuring the music of Jon Lawton, Pete Madsen, and yours truly: 

"This extraordinary set showcases the talents of three premier Bay Area acoustic bluesmen, to excellent effect. I have long been familiar with the work of Preacher Boy, a.k.a. Christopher Watkins, and his selections included here are among the finest in his remarkable catalog. However, I was unaware of either Little Jonny Lawton or Pete Madsen, and I am grateful to have been introduced to their work. I can now safely say that I am a fan of all three musicians, and that "Acoustic Blues Summit" has earned a place of honor in my collection. This is music that both timeless and thoroughly modern, and compelling evidence that the blues is alive and thriving in 2020. Lawton, Madsen, and Watkins have given the world a remarkable gift; we should be grateful, and embrace it wholeheartedly. Their wonderful collaboration is just what we need to help us survive these perilous times." 

You can find the review on the Amazon page for the "Acoustic Blues Summit" release:
