BROADCASTING legend ‘Whispering’ Bob Harris believes a young guitarist from Kenilworth could be the next big thing.
Ten-year-old Crackley School pupil Toby Lee recently performed at the Cropredy Music Festival in Oxfordshire, which attracts some 20,000 people a year.
And former Old Grey Whistle Test host and Radio 2 presenter was there recording for his online TV channel ‘WhisperingBobTV’. Toby was one of those asked to film for the show.
The budding rock star performed a rendition of Stevie Ray Vaughan’s Pride and Joy.
Toby has become used to being in the limelight since he released a song dedicated to the now-late BB King. It went viral, being viewed more than five million times online.
And Bob – who presents a rock and country music show on Radio 2 – was left impressed by the youngster’s performance.
He said: “There was a ten-year-old guitarist, Toby, he was sensational. Been playing since he was six. I mean he was like Stevie Ray Vaughan. He was a great highlight of the festival.”
