Bob Margolin is a steady rollin’ Blues guitar player/singer who tours worldwide with his band, solo, or as a featured guest. He delivers original songs and the spirit of Chicago Blues that he learned on stage and recording in Muddy Waters’ band from 1973-1980. You can see him with Muddy and The Band in the Last Waltz film from 1976 to live in the all-star 2022 Last Waltz shows by Blackbird Presents. Bob is known for his slide guitar, powerful vocals, sound, stories, and time travel of his experiences with the legends he knew.
Margolin’s new album is So Far, with harp master Bob Corritore. Already well-known in the Blues World, they collaborate on an acoustic duo album for the first time. Special guest guitarist-vocalist Jimmy Vivino graces two songs.
Margolin is touring now. The 2022 Last Waltz May shows feature Warren Haynes, Don Was, Grace Potter, Jamey Johnson, Larry Campbell, and more. Margolin also does duo shows with Jimmy Vivino, “Just 2 Guitars & 200 Stories,” which are intimate and entertaining. He plays festivals with “The Bobs of the Blues” with Bob Corritore and Bob Stroger.
