A Windsor guitarist has the talent for a big career but first he's got to graduate from high school.

Last Saturday night I was asked to induct blues musician Sonny Rhodes into the Canada South Blues Museum.
That night there was an opening act featuring three young musicians from Windsor.
Normally, when you see this you think, isn't that nice giving the kids a little experience on the stage.
The band was called West Palm Blues Band with a 15 year old drummer and guitarist and a twelve year old bass player.
Well, once they started the house went nuts.
These kids could play and it turns out that the guitarist Christian Vegh is already getting a lot of attention for his skill and talent.
He's in grade ten, in the International Baccalaureate program at Assumption high School.
I visited him at his home in LaSalle last night. (runs 8:41)
