“John’s sound is so compelling, complete, symmetrical and soulful with just his voice, guitar and harmonica, it is at first impossible to imagine improving it… He’s a great force of nature. John sounds like a big train coming. He chops them all down.” — Tom Waits

Considered one of the world’s premier acoustic blues artists, John Hammond has been nominated for Grammy awards several times and in 2011 was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame. Over a career spanning more than half a century, John Hammond has performed or recorded with Jimi Hendrix (discovered while playing in John’s band), Eric Clapton, Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Duane Allman, Mike Bloomfield, JJ Cale, Tom Waits, The Band, John Lee Hooker, Dr. John and many more. He remains one of the world’s premier acoustic blues artists. A tireless performer, he played his 4000th date as a Rosebud artist in June 2008 and continues to tour world-wide on an annual basis.

During a short question and answer period at the beginning of the second set, John will talk with the audience about his musical influences and own unique style. The Q & A will be facilitated by folklorist Dr. Simon Bronner.
