11yr old Josh King and Tommy Emmanuel - Blues in My Sleep

Josh King joins Tommy with his own song, Blues in My Sleep (based on James Cotton's instrumental) at the Surflight Theatre on Long Beach Island and brings the house down!

Josh has been coming to Tommy's shows for a few years now and wowed him straight away with his harmonica playing. They have played together a number of times and it's been great to see Josh getting better and better each time.
