Bill Blue & Tim Carter – Guitars & Banjos
Two legendary performers combined their talents. Key West legend Bill Blue has performed here for decades and was recognized by this city and honored with a Bill Blue Day. Tim Carter makes his home in Nashville, tours the world but keeps coming back to Key West, a place where he has loved to perform for the past 25 years.
These two master musicians and their great bands played a special night of music together. Bill Blue had new music to share and Tim Carter tried to “recapture” the banjo.
Tim says the banjo has become so closely associated with folk singers and bluegrass players, that over the years the instrument just lost touch with its African roots and American Blues.
They opened the show with an acoustic set of classic blues. They combined their talents to recapture the roots blues of Guitars & Banjos.
