Ever on the move, pursuing a career spanning five decades, never resting on his laurels, Eric Bibb has a full bag of stories to tell from around the world and here he comes, bringing his new album Global Griot with him.
Global indeed, recorded in France, Sweden, Jamaica, Ghana, Canada, the UK and the US ! If the expression “World Music” were not so problematic and much misused as a marketing tool it would suit Eric’s approach. But don’t get it wrong: He is first and foremost a “blues brother”- an old school bluesman who finds ways to expand his domain.
Always the entertainer, the educator and the motivator, Eric Bibb, continues to resonate with what is currently happening in the world today.
A leading bluesman of his generation, two time Grammy nominated Eric Bibb will take to the stage with his sensational band for an evening of uplifting and inspiring folk and blues. Having previously wowed Australian audiences many times over the years, a fiery singer with true soul, gospel and folk roots, it will be an honour to welcome Eric back to Australia.
