SADIE (& SAM) JOHNSON
I first met Sadie Johnson three years ago at the International Blues Challenge.
She and her older sister Sam were there as part of the Youth Showcase with their band The Sad Sam Blues Jam.
Since that time, Sadie had grown tremendously as a guitar player, even being inducted into the “Brotherhood Of The Guitar” in the last year.
I chatted with Sadie about her new band, The Sadie Johnson Band, and what her life has been like since she joined TBOTG.
Sam, who was sitting quietly in the background then jumped onto the phone call while we discussed the ladies involvement with The Blue Star Connection and the festival they began last year The Bedford Blues & Brews Festival, that supports this great organization.
We listened to three new songs from the band and talked about their working on a new upcoming album.
