Quinn Sullivan: Electric Blues at its Best

Quinn Sullivan who will be 11 on March 26 has been playing the guitar since the age of three.

Blues singer-guitarist Buddy Guy has spotlighted Sullivan in his concerts. Sullivan plays riffs that accomplished guitarists can only dream about.

Playing this well at an early age should be a springboard to a long and successful career. He first appeared on national television in 2006 on the Ellen DeGeneres show and has since appeared on the Today and Oprah Winfrey shows.

The following videos show how his career has evolved since 2006:

Buddy Guy introduces Sullivan at the age of 8 during his concert in 2007 and Guy is amazed at his talent at such an early age.

Sullivan singing his life story showing he is not only a great guitarist but can sing the blues with the best of them.

It will be interesting to watch and listen to Quinn Sullivan as his career continues to grow and he has a bright future ahead of him and should be able to make a living for years to come playing the electric blues on his guitar.

  1. Came across Quinn Sullivan while looking up some videos of Buddy Guy. Fascinating young man. I can’t believe I’m a fan of a 10 year old blues guitarist – but what can I say. He’s good.

    1. Most 10 year olds are still learning their ABC’s so it is amazing to see a kid that age playing a guitar like a pro. There has to be a lot of guitar players two or three times his age that can’t play that well.
