AdvertisementTwo-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!
