Eric Bibb

Opening Act(s): Michael Jerome Browne

Bibb is a native New Yorker with deep roots in the American blues and folk tradition. The son of 1960s folk and musical theater singer and television personality Leon Bibb, Eric’s uncle was the jazz pianist and composer John Lewis of the Modern Jazz Quartet, and Paul Robeson was his godfather. As a boy, he was surrounded by major musical figures of the times. By age 19 he was playing in Parisian restaurants, and has been based primarily in Europe ever since.

As a recording artist, Eric earned a Grammy nomination for his collaboration (with Taj Mahal and others) on the children’s record, Shakin’ A Tailfeather. And Painting Signs was recognized by “New Age Voice as a Finalist for Best Folk Album of 2001. He joined Maria Muldaur and Rory Block to record the gospel-flavored Sisters & Brothers, and then released Friends, a collection of duets with Taj Mahal, Odetta, and others. Recent recordings on Telarc include A Ship Called Love and Diamond Days.
