Buddy and mark will be representing fort smith riverfront blues society at the International Blues challenge 2022
Buddy Shute (vocals, guitar) and Mark McGee (harmonica) combine the sounds of the blues they grew up with and stories of the past. A native Memphian, Buddy played music from an early age. A prolific songwriter, his tunes reflect years spent in New Orleans and other locales.
Mark began playing in the 70’s and has always stayed true to the blues. Known for his steady, no-frills playing, he’s one of Northwest Arkansas’ most well-respected players.
For over 20 years, this duo has entertained audiences and each other with talent, humor and the feeling you get listening to the old blues masters.
