Concert: Terry Robb with David Wiegan
October 13, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$10
TERRY ROBB has been praised by Rolling Stone, Down Beat, Acoustic Guitar, Guitar Player, Blues Blast, Blues Matters, Guitar World, Blues Revue, Oprah’s O Magazine and countless more esteemed journals, placing him among the top acoustic blues guitarists of our time. His signature fingerpicking style has landed him in the Oregon Music Hall of Fame and earned him international acclaim from music critics, peers and fans. Incorporating elements from the Mississippi Delta, ragtime, country, swing and jazz, Robb is a dynamic live performer with an unmistakable one-man-band sound. “Finger gawkers flood to his shows,” said Frank Matheis of Living Blues Magazine. “It’s the rare guitarist who can whip off a killer 12-bar blues solo, then turn around fingerpick Travis-style with speed and subtlety,” said Ian Zack of Acoustic Guitar Magazine.
With more than 15 releases under his name, Robb’s blues chart-topping discography features collaborations with steel-string guitar icon John Fahey, Eddy Clearwater, Maria Muldaur, Ike Willis, and Curtis Salgado. His latest release Cool On The Bloom garnered a nomination as 2017 Best Acoustic Album by Blues Blast Music Awards. Robb has toured nationally with Buddy Guy and Steve Miller, shared the stage with B.B. King, Albert Lee, Joe Cocker, Bo Diddley, David Crosby, George Thorogood, Leo Kottke, Johnny Winter and numerous more all-stars, and appeared as a guest of “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” the NBA Trail Blazers and the Oregon Symphony. An acclaimed record producer and session guitarist, his work is featured in Hollywood films, documentaries and biographies, such as “The Horse Whisperer,” “Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far On Foot,” and Dance of Death: The Life of John Fahey, American Guitarist. He produced Alice Stuart’s album Can’t Find No Heaven, nominated for Grammy and Blues Music Awards. A member of the Cascade Blues Association Hall of Fame, Robb was honored the eponymous “Terry Robb” Acoustic Guitar Muddy Award after winning the prize for 19 consecutive years, and in 2017 he received the Lifetime Achievement Muddy Award.
Terry Robb was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, raised in the United States and resides in Portland, Oregon.
