Berkshires native and guitar virtuoso, Albert Cummings,
brought his blues-rock power trio to the Lake George Arts Project’s Summer Concert Series in Shepard Park, July 13th. Presenting an aggressive mix of originals and covers, Cummings and his bandmates lit-up the lakeside amphitheater by showing the large audience what a world-class outfit can do sonically with an electrified blues-rock program filled with soaring and tasteful guitar-lines integrated masterfully to a dynamic rhythm section.
His soulful tenor-vocals propelled songs culled from several decades of his album releases including his latest, 2022’s “Ten,” as well as nuggets that tipped his stylistic hat to Eric Clapton’s Cream, Leslie West’s Mountain, Stevie Ray Vaughn with Double Trouble and Jimi Hendrix’s Experience/ Band of Gypsies; where that night he pulled out all the stops on a jaw-dropping rendition of “Voodoo Child” that concluded with thunderous applause.
