West Princes Street Gardens Spiegeltent
West Princes Street Gardens, Edinburgh
It really only happens once in a while - a fresh young talent, whose star power can't be denied, comes along to take the blues by storm. Stevie Ray Vaughan and Robert Cray did it in the '80s. John Nemeth is the next young blues star to do it. Last year, he was a first time sensation at the Festival. Hailing from Boise, Idaho and now living in Memphis, Nemeth’s deeply forged amalgamation of scorching harmonica-driven blues and sweet blue-eyed soul makes him seem like kin to the long-gone originals, Sam Cooke, Otis Redding and Jackie Wilson and rootsy blues heroes like Little Walter and Sonny Boy Williamson.
