Welcome

BREAKING NEWS! Eric Bibb's album, Migration Blues, has been nominated for a Grammy Award, in the Traditional Blues category. I helped produce this album with Eric and J.J. Milteau, played a bunch of instruments on it, and even contributed a couple of songs that B.A. Markus and I wrote. The album was recorded at Larry O'Malley's Audio Bec studios in Sherbrooke, Québec. Congratulations to everyone involved! Very exciting! I'm trying to figure out how I can go to the ceremony, which is in New York on January 28th. We're up against the Rolling Stones...

 

"CAN'T KEEP A GOOD MAN DOWN" (Borealis Records) has been available since November, 2016, and launched in Montreal on the 25th. It is a compilation of traditional blues, in the spirit of "SLIDING DELTA," taken from various albums going back to 1998. There are five original songs in the style, including one brand new recording from 2016, the topical "FOUR YEARS, NO RAIN." Blues classics from the past include songs by Tampa Red, Jesse Fuller, Frankie Lee Sims, Mississippi John Hurst, Reverend Gary Davis, and Frank Stokes. Although mostly solo, there are a few guests: John McColgan, Jordan Officer, Michael Ball, Jody Benjamin, Steve Marriner, Stephen Barry, and the late Vann "Piano Man" Walls.

"SLIDING DELTA" has been out, courtesy of Borealis Records, since January, 2015. A collection of the 1920s-1930s rural blues that inspired me to start playing in my youth- Mississippi John Hurt, Fred McDowell, Skip James, Memphis Minnie, Charley Patton, Blind Willie McTell, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Barbecue Bob... You can stream a few of these songs right now on the Music page.

Blues, Old Time, Cajun, Country, Soul and Swing.  Roots music is the music I play on guitars, banjos, fiddle, mandolin and harmonica. It is also the music I sing. A wide repertoire of all variety of songs. Songs that are traditional, original and interpreted.
 
For over thirty years now, I have studied, composed, and recorded many kinds of roots music, and performed on many continents.
 
If you, like me, are nourished and inspired by this kind of music, I invite you to explore my site. With any luck, I'll be playing somewhere near your town sometime soon. If not, I have many recordings to choose from, and you can listen to some of them here. (You can click below, and for more, check out the Music page).
