Belfour gave us a memorable two hours. A Memorable, half master class and half of an ancient voodoo ritual, without any softening layer of any filter.
— Amos Harel, HAARETZ
…him, his guitar and the whole history of black people in America over hundreds of years.
— Ben Shalev, HAARETZ
It’s hard to point exactly to what made it, but in the moment that Belfour started pulling his magic from the guitar, time stood still. It was hard not to wonder, Belfour plays so well that every year dozens of young guitarists going that tree at the intersection in Mississippi hoping the devil would give them half the capability of Robert Belfour exchange for their souls.
At this point it was clear to the audience that the real thing came to town. Tel Aviv will not forget this performance.
Belfour gave a Blues performance that few were lucky enough to witness, two hours in which he produced the best of his repertoire, while giving a little lesson in blues guitar to the audience, and proved to be an acoustic blues guitar virtuoso who controls several tunings and different scales, and does it well. He was in top form and gave a performance one of the best he had, the audience received a great display.
Belfour’s creativity level is the highest of it’s kind to be found these days in blues and it’s amazing to see how a single man with a guitar can do so many creative and different things and it works well today.
