Recently, Cole had the pleasure of having blues and rock icon Elvin Bishop join him for a session. Making it even cooler was the inclusion of former Blue Bear student-turned-intern Jared Rao, who was also Cole’s drum student for many years. Jared and Elvin swapped guitar stories, and Elvin talked about moving to Chicago to follow the blues.
