QuaranTunes @Noon will feature Lon Eldridge with a free streaming concert on Friday.
Review for Lon Eldridge:
Lon Eldridge is often said to have talent and style well beyond his years. Lon has toured both the USA and Europe, taking his unique blend of traditional pre-war blues, ragtime, and swing to whole new audiences. This is a show (and a mustache) you definitely don't want to miss.
Lon began playing guitar at the age of 13, and it quickly grew into a passion and an obsession. Lon's playing style is one of intricate fingerstyle guitar work, evoking the spirits of Mississippi John Hurt, Robert Johnson, Blind Blake and countless other musical masters. Alongside this is a calm, cool stage demeanor that would lead you to believe he's actually sitting in an arm chair in your living room, rather than on a stage. An avid collector of 78rpm records, Lon spends most of his free time tucked away with his ear glued to a Victrola horn.
