Watch Young Maine Guitarist Channel Jimi Hendrix
We first featured Kennebunk's Michael Corleto when he was invited onstage by legendary bluesman, Buddy Guy last year at Aura. Pretty impressive to have your skills recognized by a big name performer like that, right?
It's also really great to see this talented young guitar virtuoso is still out there playing gigs whenever and wherever he can.
His Facebook 'About' section reads:
" Fourteen year old guitarist living in Southern Maine. Playing blues, rock, jazz. Have guitar, will travel... as long as dad will drive me !!"
He joined local musicians Jake Perron and Benjamin Darrah over the weekend at Funky Bow in Lyman. Here's a great quick video of Michael taking on Voodoo Child by Jimi Hendrix.
It's only 45 seconds long, but that's plenty of time for you to see that at 14, he's already a wizard putting us under his spell with that Les Paul. Killin' it!
