On this Hector Anchondo Interview, Hector talks about his 24 year journey and the things he did – including listening to nothing but blues for an entire year, and moving to Chicago to learn the craft – that got him where he is today. The Market for Blues Festival in Omaha and what inspired Hector to create this festival, why being a good father was so important to him, lowering his anxiety, farm life, and why he loves “being bold.” What a sweet and talented guy – we’ll all be hearing more from him moving forward!
Hector Anchondo recently won the International Blues Challenge, in addition to taking home the Memphis Cigar Box Guitar Award for best guitarist.
