Knut Reiersrud

After Buddy Guy and Otis Rush saw the 18-year-old Knut Reiersrud playing his guitar, they invited him to join their jam session in the holy halls of the Chess Studio in Chicago. Not only because of that Knut Reiersrud colaborated during his career with many world famous artists like the Blind Boys of Alabama. While his playing is innovative, and points in directions well beyond the horizon of the blues, you can't deny that this is where he comes from. Comparisons have been made with artists as varied as Derek Trucks and the Indian string virtuoso Vishwa Mohan, but  you can always hear silent quotations of B.B. King and the strident style of an icon like Albert King from his strings.
