We’re delighted to be working with Eric Bibb for the first time!

Two-time Grammy Award nominee Eric Bibb will come ridin’ on to UK shores in May 2023. The world renowned blues troubadour and his band will perform the classics he is known and loved for, whilst introducing brand new material from his much-anticipated forthcoming album, Ridin’, which is due for release in Spring 2023.

Ridin’ follows on from the multiple award-winning, critically acclaimed album Dear America; a wonderful continuation of the vision that informs Eric Bibb’s artistry as a modern-day bluesman. Grounded in blues and folk tradition with contemporary sensibilities, Bibb’s music continues to reflect his thoughts on current world events and his own lived experiences, whilst remaining entertaining, uplifting, inspirational and relevant. As Blues Brother actor Dan Aykroyd famously declared to Eric, ‘You are what the blues in the new century should be about’.

2023’s UK Ridin’ tour will include performances with a full live band nationwide. An Eric Bibb show always promises a remarkable experience — not one to be missed!

‘One of the finest American exponents of acoustic blues, an engaging performer and rousing guitarist who is blessed with a quite remarkable voice’ – The Guardian

Tour support comes from Michael Jerome Browne. Three-time Canadian Folk Music Award winner, recipient of the Blues With A Feeling Award at the 2020 Maple Blues Awards (with 35 nominations since 1999), five-time Juno Award Nominee in both the Roots/Traditional and Blues categories, Michael Jerome Browne is a multi-instrumentalist, a songwriter, and a living encyclopedia of American Roots music. That’s Where It’s At! is his latest Juno-nominated album on Borealis Records, released in 2019.
