I’m not sure if I’ve followed Tinsley Ellis or if he’s following me.
A cool Southern blues guitarist, Ellis first came to my attention when he was starting out in Georgia and I was in school in Athens, Ga. He’d play a local club, and I’d hear about how he’d take his guitar outside and play for the guys who couldn’t get in.
Well, he’s still at it. He plays quite a bit down here, and people know him for his showmanship and his technical skill.
He’s playing Friday at the Back Room in Boca Raton.
