Eric Bibb

A performance by Eric Bibb is an enriching experience – both musically and spiritually. Purveying a beautifully realised and deftly accomplished, soulful and gospel infused, folk- blues, Eric has no problem melding a traditional rootsy American style with a subtle contemporary sensibility. As one critic wrote “Eric’s singing and versatile guitar playing fuses a variety of genres to become a New World Blues”. 

On the back  of his  2005 release ‘A Ship Called Love ‘, Grammy Award nominee and 4 –times WC Handy award nominee Eric  toured the world as ever, including a major US tour with John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers and previous Colne Guest, Robben Ford. This added to earlier tours with both Robert Cray and Ray Charles as well as  impressive TV appearances including ‘The Late Late Show and’ Later With Jools Holland’. He also appeared on Jools’ ‘Small World, Big Band’ album. 

Eric has also performed at Glastonbury four times, Cambridge Folk Festival, B.B.Kings and Nice Jazz Festival – and that’s just for starters! 

2008 saw the release of Eric’s latest album, ‘Get Onboard’. The album was recorded in Nashville and completed in Stockholm. Bonnie Raitt and Ruthie Foster are featured guest performers. 

Eric describes his latest creation as follows “My new album Get Onboard is, without a doubt one of the most exciting projects of my career. It’s a further exploration into the place where blues meets gospel and soul.” 

The album features a stellar line-up of musicians - the Nashville band included producer Glen Scott on keyboards and backing vocals, Tommy Sims (Bruce Springsteen, Kelly Clarkson, Eric Clapton) on guitar, bass and backing vocals, Lemar Carter on drums (Carrie Underwood, Joss Stone, India Arie) and other Nashville musical luminaries. 

"Eric is one of the new, young singers that has appeared on the scene that, much to my delight, has a great voice, is an excellent performer and has a great knowledge about the roots of this music"
Taj Mahal
