Florida legend Joey Gilmore is a distinguished figure in the world of blues and soul. As a teen he began his love affair with the guitar, learning from a local barbershop owner who was also a preacher. The minister’s electric guitar fascinated Gilmore and he would hang around the shop just to get his hands on the guitar. After learning through observation and practice, Gilmore’s talent would shine. He’s played at festivals and venues all over the world, sharing the stage with greats such as James Brown, Etta James, Johnny Taylor, and Bobby Bland, among others. In 2006, Gilmore won the IBC, the most distinguished and internationally coveted award in all of blues.
