Acclaimed Blues Guitarist Terry Robb Returns to the Arts Center
TERRY ROBB has been praised by Rolling Stone, Vintage Guitar, Down Beat, Acoustic Guitar, Living Blues, Guitar Player, Blues Blast, Guitar World, Blues Matters, Blues Revue, Oprah’s O Magazine and countless more esteemed journals, placing him among the top acoustic blues guitarists of our time.
His signature fingerpicking style landed him in the Oregon Music Hall of Fame and the Cascade Blues Association Hall of Fame, and earned him international acclaim from music critics, peers and fans. Incorporating elements from the Mississippi Delta, ragtime, country, swing and jazz, Robb is a dynamic live performer with an unmistakable one-man-band sound. “Exquisite musicality…unquestionably, Robb ranks right up there with the heavy hitters, a player of dazzling skill and technique…finger gawkers flood to his shows,” said Frank Matheis of Living Blues magazine. “It’s the rare guitarist who can whip off a killer 12-bar blues solo, then turn around fingerpick Travis-style with speed and subtlety,” mused Ian Zack of Acoustic Guitar magazine. And Dan Forte of Vintage Guitar magazine hailed him as “one of the best players, on acoustic and electric, embracing a range of blues styles and then some.”
A member of the Cascade Blues Association Hall of Fame, Robb was honored the eponymous “Terry Robb” Acoustic Guitar Muddy Award after winning the prize for 19 consecutive years, and in 2017 he received the Lifetime Achievement Muddy Award. Terry Robb was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, raised in the United States and resides in Portland, Oregon.
