Rock Me Baby - Beverly "Guitar" Watkins w/the Rick Fowler Band, Foundry, Athens, Ga., 03/10/17

"Ya'll ready for a little blues?" Beverly "Guitar" Watkins recently recovered from a bout of pneumonia, performing with the Rick Fowler Band at the Foundry in Athens, Ga. Grateful to be on stage, the energetic 78-year-old blues legend has been performing since the '50's when she was a member of Piano Red's band in Atlanta, Ga. The Rick Fowler Band also has a lifetime of experience and is a world class ensemble that skillfully supports Beverly whenever they play together. Rick Fowler - guitar, vocals. Michael Doke - slide guitar, vocals. Deane Quinter - drums, vocals. Greg Veale - bass, vocals. Tim White - Hammond organ. 

Sadly, Ms. Beverly passed away Oct. 1, 2019 after complications from a stroke. Her energy, love, and spirit is sorely missed.

Beverly has been picked as one of the top 10 female guitar players of all time.
