“Heather, you rocked again. We gotta do this some more and I am absolutely certain that we will. Practice and stay cocky. Love ya.” -­‐Butch Trucks, Allman Brothers Band “Keep up the music, you sound great” -­‐Bobby Lee Rogers “THE festival moment happened. Perhaps you can relate. Some event occurs that bookmarks the festival in your brain for all time. It happened midset, when the Col. introduced Heather Gillis, a young lady from Tallahassee with a guitar.” “She is a young lady who made a ton of wanne-­‐be guitar players shrug and cry as she ripped three separate solos over the next few tunes, each in a different style. And with a huge smile. AND with a huge upsurge from the crowd after each one. Yep. THAT was the moment “ -­‐ Scott Hopkins, Music Fest News “Hear what the next generation of blues musicians has in store when guitarist Heather Gillis, 20, takes the stage” -­‐Tallahassee Democrat PRESS
