King of Blues Music: Duke Robillard
He may not be a household name in my country Phillipines but in the 'Blues music world', American singer songwriter/producer DUKE ROBILLARD is a total talented artist and has been thrilling the music scene for over three decades.
He is generally regarded as a master guitar player- having won numerous awards including Best Blues Guitarist (2000, 2001, 2003, 2004 The Blues Music Awards) and a two times Grammy nominee (2007, 2010) for Best Contemporary Blues (for Guitar Groove-A-rama album) and Best Traditional Blues (for Stomp! The Blues tonight album) respectively.
Robillard stays on the road, playing as many as 250 dates a year. And still proving, night after night, that his true talent is bringing people out to hear the music, appreciate the show and most especially keeping the blues music alive.
Below is a cut from his latest work Tale from the Tiki Louge, a cover song originally performed by Les Paul and Mary Ford.
