Blues guitarist Christoffer "Kid" Andersen is from Herre, Norway. By age 11, Andersen had gained the attention of Norwegian blues guitar teacher, Morten Omlid, who steered him towards traditional blues music. In 2001, at age 21, Andersen moved to the United States, joined blues frontman Terry Hanck's band, and quickly became a figure on the West Coast blues scene.

Andersen later played in Charlie Musselwhite's band and got a Blues Music Award (formerly W.C. Handy Award) for best contemporary blues album for Charlie Musselwhite's Delta Hardware.

Kid Andersen will be joined by Joh "Blues" Boyd. It has been said that John Boyd should be regarded as a national treasure, his diction and the magisterial tone of his voice, strong, commanding but calm and filled with warm emotions, has a palette with many colors and shades.
