Donnie Beadles, local guitarist, had the opportunity to trade hot guitar licks with Robert Randolph this past weekend at Norfolk’s Bayou Boogaloo and Cajun Food Festival.
Pedal steel guitarist Randolph, who leads Robert Randolph and the Family Band, is included on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 100 greatest guitarists of all time.
Beadles said of the experience, “Me and him in front of what looked like thousands of people trading leads, and him pushing me out front to solo … great 15-minute jam and awesome to hear that many people screaming over me playing guitar. I can’t stop smilin’!”
