After last weeks post about young Tallen Latz, I went searching for other young prodigy guitar players. (No disrespect to Tallen, I just figured there would be others.)
I found numerous videos of young Quinn Sullivan, who was introduced to a national audience when he appeared on The Ellen Degeneres Show in 2005 when he was 6 years old.
In the next few years he followed with appearances on stage alongside Buddy Guy and BB King. He played in venues such as the Beacon Theatre in New York, the Orpheum Theatre in Boston, and Buddy Guy’s Legends in Chicago.
In 2008, he appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show.
In 2009, Sullivan was featured on The Today Show and opened for Buddy Guy on his East Coast tour during the summer in addition to playing his own set at the Austin City Limits Festival in the fall.
All that before turning 10 years old!
This is the video that started it all for Quinn. A young boy, with no fear, stand up and nails the Beatles and the Blues. Be sure to watch until the end when Ellen presents Quinn with a gift that blows everybody (especially Quinn) away!
A brand new Gibson ES-335!
