Additional Facts
Guitarist. Bandleader. Songwriter. Singer. Producer. Session musician. And a one-man cheering section for the blues, in all its forms and permutations.† And every one of those names has shared recording studio space or stage time with a man who is a legend in the blues community.

The W.C. Handy Awards have named Duke Robillard "Best Blues Guitarist" two years in a row (2000 and 2001), B.B. King says Dukeís "one of the great players," and the Houston Post called him "one of Godís guitarists."† And the New York Times says Robillard is "a soloist of stunning force and originality."

None of that goes to Robillardís head.† Heís still on the road, still 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 dance to the blues.
