Al Fuller is Sarasota’s #1 bluesman. His fine, bluesy baritone voice reels out tune after tune with precision, while accompanying himself on a Gibson 6-string, a Fender Stratocaster, a National Resophonic Guitar, assorted harmonicas, and some fancy footwork.
John Long, fingerpicker and slide guitarist and harmonica ace, deserves to be celebrated as one of the finest practitioners of the traditional blues. While he sounds like the old masters, he performs exciting and original material with a batch of very cool songs that are as fresh as his arrival on the scene. . For the last 30+ years, Long has been seriously honing his craft, perfecting his art, and finding his voice. His album “Stand Your Ground” was nominated for acoustic album of the year at the 2017 Blues Music Awards. As legendary singer and harmonica player Al Blake has said, “John Long is the best rack harmonica player I have ever heard. He is an outstanding singer and true original voice on guitar. He is an incredible song writer as well. What more could you ask for?”
