Alvin Youngblood Hart image

The Memphis guitarist and vocalist is one of the world’s leading new blues powers. Hard rockin’ electric blues, southern boogie, country blues, with a deep soulful voice and formidable guitar playing. From Hendrix to Gatemouth Brown. Hart's slippery slide guitar work and deep, throaty growl transports the audience to the sweltering juke joints of the Delta. Raised on the music of great American bluesmen, Charlie Patton, Robert Johnson and Taj Mahal, Hart plays a percussive Mississippi blues blending technique and feeling, structure and spontaneity, tradition and freshness, winning countless awards. “Boy got thunder in his hands! Sure does” (Taj Mahal)
