Eric Bibb (USA)
One of the world’s leading bluesmen of our time, two–time Grammy Award nominee, Eric Bibb will come riding onto Australian shores in 2023. Returning for the Aussie summer, Bibb will perform the classics he is known and loved for, whilst introducing brand new material from his much–anticipated forthcoming album, titled Ridin’, which will be available ahead of its release date exclusively at these shows. On this leg of the tour, Bibb fans will get the full, ramped up experience as Bibb is joined by his sensational band in March. Bibb is the ultimate ‘blues brother’. A fiery singer with true soul, his career spans five decades and almost 40 albums. He is known and revered globally for having carved his own musical destiny with honesty and power. Grounded in the folk/blues tradition with contemporary sensibilities, Bibb’s music continues to reflect his thoughts on current world events, whilst remaining entertaining, uplifting and inspirational. And always relevant. Whether in solo or full band mode, an Eric Bibb show promises to be a remarkable experience, not to be missed. As Blues Brother actor, Dan Aykroyd famously declared to the American born singer, ‘You are what the blues in the new century should be about.’
Eric Bibb’s band during the March leg of his Ridin’ tour will be: Eric Bibb – Guitar and main vox, Christer Lyssarides – Guitar, Paul Robinson – Drums, Glen Scott – Bass.
