Brooks Robertson

We travel to Eugene to meet Brooks Robertson, a 16-year-old guitar-playing sensation. Brooks had no interest in the guitar until, at age 12, he heard famed guitar picker Buster B. Jones playing at a concert. Jones later moved to Eugene where he was stricken with a debilitating illness. Teaching Brooks became a part of Jones’ rehabilitation.
