When it comes to talented young people, Nathan Pope is top shelf.  His musical ability and skill level on the guitar is well advanced for someone his age.  His classic blues riffs and edgy rock overtones sound like a veteran guitarist who has been playing for years.  It was an honor to have him on the Carolina Blues Festival stage.  His performance not only gave a the festival a huge wow factor he received rave reviews from the crowd.  Without a doubt, the youth showcase featuring Nathan was one of the highlights of the 31st annual blues festival.  Nathan’s dedication to his craft and his natural giftings are certain to pave the way for his career in music.   If he is on the billing somewhere near you, be sure to catch this emerging young artist, you will not be disappointed.  Nathan Pope is nothing short of spectacular.
