Cristoffer "Kid" Anderson & John Boyd JanuaryJan 04 2023 05:30pm - 09:00pm330 Virginia St, Vallejo, CA 94590

Blues guitarist Christoffer "Kid" Andersen is from Herre, Norway By age 11, Andersen had gained the attention of Norwegian blues guitar teacher, Morten Omlid, who steered him towards traditional blues music. In 2001, at age 21, Andersen moved to the United States, joined blues frontman Terry Hanck's band, and quickly became a figure on the West Coast blues scene.[1]

 Andersen later played in Charlie Musselwhite's band and got a Blues Music Award (formerly W.C. Handy Award) for best contemporary blues album for Charlie Musselwhite's Delta Hardware.[2]

Many blues lovers were introduced to the music of John "Blues" Boyd by Kid Andersen when they were working together on Billy Price's new recording.  Listeners were immediately struck by the clarity of his diction and the magisterial tone of his voice.

 Boyd should be regarded as a National Treasure and his story stands as a testament to the struggle and contribution of the Afro-American people who have contributed so much to make this country great. In John’s songs and memories is a warning that we should all heed about what can happen when we allow evil to prosper.
