Bob Margolin has been a leading force in the blues world for more than 50 years now, as guitarist, bandleader, featured sideman, producer, teacher, writer, recording artist, and keeper of the flame. In the last couple years he reprised his iconic 1976 performance alongside former boss Muddy Waters in Warren Haynes’s hugely successful, star-studded “Last Waltz” tribute tours, and won last year’s “Acoustic Blues Album” Blues Music Award for his first all-acoustic album, “This Guitar and Tonight.”
Margolin’s new album, “Star of Stage and Screens,” continues the all-acoustic format, with new original songs taking on the Coronavirus, isolation, and the halt of live music. He shares missing shows and friends, fear for the word, outrage, grief, new coping skills and new ways to present his music. Home recorded with his trademark slide on his 1930s Gibson and a National Steel guitar, Margolin embraces both traditional styles and new explorations.
