Acclaimed Blues Singer Eric Bibb Returns to Ojai
Acclaimed blues singer, Eric Bibb returns to Ojai on Friday, September 12, at 7:30 at Matilija Auditorium, 703 El Paseo Rd., Ojai.
A performance by Eric Bibb is an enriching experience – both musically and spiritually. Purveying a beautifully realized 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.
Bibb’s rich and sensitive vocals and lyrics provide a perfect balance to his fine finger picking technique. For four decades, singer-songwriter-guitarist Eric Bibb has criss-crossed the globe, captivating live audiences by bearing witness to the infinite complexities of the human experience – both the mundane and the spiritual – with music that’s steeped in the tradition of American blues and layered with generous shades of folk and gospel. He is, in every respect, a modern-day troubadour – heir to the legacy of Lead Belly, Woody Guthrie, Odetta and countless other great voices of the early and mid-20th century.
