Hayden discovered the blues at an early age while living in Mississippi and started playing guitar just before his 9th Birthday. He was birthed into the music scene at age 12 when blues legend Buddy Guy invited him to play alongside him for a sold-out show at the one of the largest music venues in his hometown of Buffalo, NY. 

Ever since, Hayden has surprised and entertained audiences across the country with his electrifying guitar playing abilities. Hayden has been invited to perform with many nationally well-known musicians including: Buddy Guy, James Cotton, Grammy® winning producer Tom Hambridge, Quinn Sullivan, Robert Randolph, Davy Knowles, Donald Kinsey & Kinsey Report, Bob Margolin and several others.

“Fogle plays the electric blues like a seasoned journeyman. His depth of soul, incisive phrasing and tendency to favor subtle nuance over flash suggests a musical maturity that belies his tender age.”
Jeff Miers - The Buffalo News

"A guitar prodigy who straps on a Fender to mystify tavern and festival crowds"
Michael Farrell - The Buffalo News

“It is an impressive feat to be signed to a major guitar label when you have been playing for only five years. It is even more impressive when you are only 13 years old. Yet Hayden Fogle, an eighth-grader at Orchard Park Middle School, is humble about being recently signed to Paul Reed Smith guitars.”
Catherine Colmerauer - Orchard Park Bee

It is that time of year again! Get ready for our sixth annual Crossroads Bluesfest!

The Crossroads Bluesfest will raise funds and awareness for homeless boys in Western New York and beyond. All funds raised from The Crossroads Bluesfest will go directly towards Plymouth Crossroads Youth Transitional Home to help get kids off the streets and into stable housing.

Last year, with your help, we raised over $12,600 for which we were able to buy; school supplies and backpacks for all of our residents; take them on summer outings; provide college tours for prospective residents; buy bus passes for our residents to get to and from work and school; provide family style meals every night and continue to make an impact in the lives of abused, runaway and homeless youth.
