Something special was happening in my hometown of Medellín, Columbia, during this year. Three big blues artists visited the town for the first time and shared with us their music and experiences, making us feel like we were in the Mississippi Delta, or maybe rolling down a long road.
On May 17, the legendary Bill Homan, professionally known as Watermelon Slim, who has been linked to several artists such as John Lee hooker, Robert Cray and Joe McDonald, reached Medellín. Before the show he was talking with us about his slide technique in a private guitar class.
The show was just amazing. It was a gig never seen before in this city. That was the first time we listened to the slide guitar played by a master. In fact, that was the first time we saw a blues legend in action. Watermelon made us feel like we were old friends, he made us feel like family.
