Acoustic Rural Blues
Eric Bibb has become a familiar face – and voice – in the U.S. and Europe. Nominated for nine Blues Music Awards and winner of the Best Newcomer title at the British Blues Awards, Bibb transcends the comparisons to Ry Cooder and Taj Mahal that abounded early on. Bibb’s rich and sensitive vocals and lyrics provide a perfect balance to his fine finger picking technique. Purveying a beautifully realized and deftly accomplished soulful folk-blues, Bibb has no problem blending various genres effortlessly, melding a traditional rootsy American style with a subtle, contemporary sensibility. His finger picking acoustic guitar playing and smooth, gentle and yet powerful voice simply drip with gospel and folk influences, yet he remains a bluesman through and through.
A performance by Eric Bibb is an enriching experience-both musically and spiritually. His music, like his personality, is intimate, assured and passionate.
