Bob Margolin - Deep Blues
Bob Margolin is prominent in today’s Blues scene. He tours worldwide at festivals, concerts, clubs and workshops.
His self-titled album reveals the latest from the 2017 Blues Music Award winner for Best Male Traditional Blues Artist. Set for release on October 12, 2018 by the VizzTone Label Group (Bob is a founding partner), six new original songs are his Blues for today’s world. He also interprets nine songs he learned “back in the day” from his legendary friends Muddy Waters, The Band, Johnny Winter, Jimmy Rogers, Snooky Pryor, Pinetop Perkins and James Cotton.
Bob played and sang every note, produced, recorded and mixed this album.
In 2018 and 2019 Bob will be performing:
• with the Bob Margolin Trio
• with the Bobs of the Blues - Bob Corritore & Bob Stroger
• Guesting with other bands, making a stronger billing than separately
From 1973-‘80 Bob played guitar in Muddy Waters’ band, appearing on all the albums Muddy made then and at special shows like The Last Waltz. Since 1980, Bob performs his own songs, but still honors his historic and personal connection to Muddy Waters.
"After nearly 50 years of playing the Blues, Margolin should be bestowed with the 'icon' title. He's not just a link to many blues artists now gone from this world…but continues to breathe new life into the genre. Be sure to follow Margolin down his own personal Blues Highway by repeatedly listening to My Road. You won't regret it." (Bill Mitchell/BluesBytes)

THIS GUITAR AND TONIGHT
AVAILABLE NOW WORLDWIDE
VizzTone is proud to announce multi-Blues Music Award Winner Bob Margolin’s new album THIS GUITAR AND TONIGHT released on October 25, 2019.
“THIS GUITAR AND TONIGHT is my first all-acoustic album. Inspired by my 1935 parlor guitar, Muddy Waters (known for his electric playing) telling me 40 years ago he actually preferred acoustic guitar, and Amy Brat’s idea that an all-acoustic album would be a fresh adventure, this album made itself. New original songs came easy. My guests on one song each are harp master Bob Corritore and guitar virtuoso Jimmy Vivino. The recording approach is pure, the music sounds right in front of you, no added sugar. No artificial ingredients.”— Bob Margolin, multi-Blues Music Award Winner
