The award-winning and veteran Watermelon Slim arrives in Cerdanyola from the United States, where he has had a frankly eclectic career path.
He has combining work such as that truck driver, and at a sawmill (a job at which he lost part of a finger), debt collector, employee of a funeral or watermelon cultivator (hence his artistic name).
He was a veteran of Vietnam, and during a turbulent era of his life he was also on the other side of the law. Once centered, however, he would end up earning two university degrees, a master's degree and forming a family. A consecrated artist, he is part of MENSA (a social association of gifted people). Completed guitarist and harmonist, his music connects directly with the deepest roots of genres.
