Truetone Lounge - Kirk Fletcher
April 17, 2020
I had been a fan of Kirk Fletcher's music for years, but it took pickup winder extraordinaire Ron Ellis to introduce us. Ron floored me by informing me that Kirk was a fan of the show, and I quickly blurted out, "I WANT HIM TO BE ON THE SHOW." Well, it took a year, but we made it happen. I must say, Kirk's joy is contagious. Then there is his fantastic tone and playing. Fletcher is one of the finest modern bluesmen.
In the latest Truetone Lounge, Kirk Fletcher shares the influences and experiences that have shaped him into one of the great modern bluesmen. Along the way, Fletcher recounts the thrills of gigging with blues greats like Charlie Musselwhite, and The Fabulous Thunderbirds, and of the challenges and rewards of launching a solo career. Kirk also clues us into how he dials in his sterling tones using a 1950’s Telecaster, 3 pedals on the floor, and a Fender Deluxe Reverb amp. His upbeat manner and stellar playing will keep you smiling until the very end.
