The Blue Hearts Mark "Westcoast" Comerford, Mark "Mojo" Johnson and Hank "Uncle Wiggly" Lionhart with very Special Guest from Portland Terry Robb

The Blue Hearts were semi finalists at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis this past February 2017 They are very excited to have Terry Robb as a Special Guest for this show. Terry Robb is one of the top acoustic blues guitarists of our time. His signature fingerpicking style has earned him international acclaim from worldwide audiences, music critics and his distinguished peers. Incorporating elements from the Mississippi Delta music tradition, ragtime, country, swing and free jazz, Robb has built a unique blues sound that has made him a legend in his over 40 year music career.
The multitude of awards Terry Robb has received speak to his seminal talent as a blues guitarist. Robb has been inducted into both the Oregon Music Hall of Fame and the Cascade Blues Association Hall of Fame. He single-handedly defined the Muddy Award for Best Acoustic Guitar, winning the honour over 19 consecutive years from 1992 until 2011. Upon his retirement from the competition in 2011, the award was changed to the “Terry Robb Best Acoustic Guitar” Muddy Award to honour his landmark contributions to blues music.
