  • Christone KingFish Ingram - Thrill is Gone LIVE at the 2016 Sam Chatmon Blues Festival

    6:47

    LIVE at the 2016 Sam Chatmon Blues Festival​ where Christone KINGFISH Ingram​ played the Thrill is Gone (BB King cover). I kept watching this young man's Fast Fingers. Jeez I did not expect that. I got close to the guitar and was stunned. If you like the video please hit Like on the Sam Chatmon Blues Festival facebook page. It helps a lot.

    For more videos go to HollandaleBlues.com . The video was shot and edited by Joshua Branning​.

    Also I value nice above everything else and Christone is a nice humble young man. He is headed in the right direction. It was great to see him perform. I was in the middle of the crowd and got knocked around a bit. Sorry if the camera slides off point. Live music is unpredictable. If you dig the blues please share. I want to film more of these if enough people like them.

    Thanks again for all the wonderful messages and comments. It's nice to read nice things.
