Matthew McGrane isn’t like a lot of the kids his age, but not for the reasons you may think. The 4 year old has a very specific taste in music. Let’s just say “The Wheels on the Bus” is not on his playlist.
“I started singing blues to him when he was not even 2 years old,” his mother, Heather Eaton McGrane said. “It cracks me up because he’s this angel-faced 4 year old belting out this song by BB King called ‘Ghetto Woman.’ It’s fascinating.”
His love for blues and the people that created it go far beyond the songs themselves. His mother says he spends his time watching concert videos and documentaries about the early blues era. They even baked cookies on March 30, in honor of Eric Clapton’s birthday.
