Two Amazing Blues Guitarists Shared A Stage

It can be incredible seeing one fabulous guitarist doing a solo show, but adding a second one can bring a show to a whole other level as it did last week with Sonny Landreth and Cindy Cashdollar.

I’d seen Sonny perform a number of times over the years (including a previous show or two at Regattabar where this show was also held) but had never seen Cindy. What a duo!The show started with Sonny coming to the stage alone and performing several numbers. It’s astounding how he can make one instrument sound like a full band!

The songs he played were from several times in his career (including ‘South of I-10’, which is my favorite album of his to date) and I loved every one of them. For me, he’s an artist who never disappoints.

When Cindy took the stage, I had no idea what to expect. She plays the dobro and steel guitar, both of which produce sounds that I never tire of hearing.

She was sitting about six feet away from me and possible less, and this was the first time I was able to witness a master dobro and lap steel played up close and personal. I was fascinated watching the way her fingers picked and slid their way across the strings.

They played mostly swamp blues. I don’t know if they played any songs written by Cindy (I know they played songs Sonny wrote), but I enjoyed them all.

They are an excellent duo who should continue playing together.
