Buddy Shute

Buddy ShuteBuddy was born in Memphis “with a lot of good music on the radio,” and started playing the bar scene there when he was 16. He spent time in New Orleans where he got to play everywhere with everybody. At one point he had a regular gig playing on a paddle wheel river boat.
He lived in New England for a time playing a variety of styles but now lives and plays in Northwest Arkansas either as a solo act or with a loose group of friends collectively known as “The Motivators.”
