A rare solo outing by Grammy Award-winning Alvin Youngblood Hart, who has been described as the cosmic American love child of Howlin Wolf and Link Wray… Known as a “musician’s musician,” Alvin Youngblood Hart’s praises have been sung by everyone from Bob Dylan to guitar gods Eric Clapton and Mick Taylor. Hart was born in Oakland, California, and spent some time in Carroll County, Mississippi, in his youth, where he was influenced by the Mississippi Country Blues performed by his relatives. Hart is known as one of the world’s foremost practitioners of country blues.
After two decades on the road, Alvin continues to delight audiences worldwide. As well as a Grammy Award winner, he is a Grammy Award Nominee and a WC Handy Award winner. As he says ‘When I was a 15 year old kid in my room, I would never believe that I would someday play legendary venues like the Hollywood Bowl or Royal Albert Hall. You couldn’t have told me that I’d be in the studio with Taj Mahal, or play onstage with the Allman Brothers Band and members of Thin Lizzy. Some days, it’s a dream job…’
‘The boy got thunder in his hands!’ Taj Mahal
