Topic: Boscoe France Documentary

There's more to Kentucky than bourbon, thoroughbred horses and basketball.  It's a state rich in music and friendly people.  Mitzi and I saw Boscoe last night and he just fawned over her from beginning to end.  I asked him about his Epiphone hollow body guitar and the next thing I know he's handing it to me and Mitz and took a picture of Mitzi for his facebook.  He pulled it out during the show a dedicated a B.B. King tune for her.  I haven't seen her so happy in a coon's age and she told me she can live for ten more years after this.
I just heard this week that a well respected Indie filmmaker from this area did a documentary of Boscoe.  I found the first part and it's quite good and hope ALL my friends here take the time to watch it.  Maybe some here can help him get some more gigs.
He told me he's doing something in Memphis next month and then going to the studio in LA with Pete Anderson.

Thanks for that link Curby. I saw Mitzi's elated facebook post and it warmed my heart. Boscoe's a real down to earth man and is earning deserved rewards.

Boscoe sounds quite a guy; on and off stage. Glad to read that you and Mitzi are gettin' out and kickin' up your heels. Gotta get you over here sometime and have a night out at The Cluny or one of my other local haunts....and if you want to bring Boscoe along, on the strength of what you've pointed out on YouTube, he'll be more than welcome.

Loved the range of guitars on the video, especially the old lap-jack, what was it, a 50s Gibson?

Re: Boscoe France Documentary

Saw Boscoe last Thursday for the first time in three or four years and I must say his sound has developed upwards.  Once a spokesman for Gibson Guitars, he's now heavily involve with PSR Solid Body Guitars and Paul Reed himself.  Found out his infrequent playing at local music spots is because he's a travelin' man now all over the States.

The PSR sound really suits his playing and I'd swear he's taken singing lessons.  Vocals are just as impressive as his now more harnessed playing.  I picked up his 1500 Miles EP from 2017 that you can get on iTunes.  Some of the best blues I've heard in years.

I couldn't stay at the Bokeh Lounge that night due to my medical issues but as soon as he saw me and gave me a big hug he dug out and dedicated to my first wife her favorite song of his, David Grissom's "Good  Day For the Blues", done Storyville style.
