This class will focus on the classic Acoustic Blues styles of players like Mississippi John Hurt to Elizabeth Cotton and John Fahey; Ragtime in the styles of Reverend Gary Davis and Blind Blake; and the Delta Blues styles of Charlie Patton, Son House and others, also covering the monotonic picking styles of Robert Johnson and Lightnin’ Hopkins.

This class will also cover Slide Guitar in open tunings. Guitar players of all levels are welcome, and curriculum is provided.

Terry Robb is hailed as one of the finest acoustic guitarists on the international scene and a virtuoso of acoustic blues guitar.

His signature fingerpicking style landed him in the Oregon Music Hall of Fame and earned him international acclaim from worldwide audiences, esteemed music critics and his distinguished peers. In his latest album Confessin My Dues, Robb draws on his deep knowledge of Delta blues, ragtime and swing in 13 original compositions ranging from blistering instrumental blues and stunning ragtime fingerpicking to soulful singing backed by a powerhouse rhythm section. From country blues to Coltrane, ragtime to Hendrix, Americana to American Primitivism, Confessin’ My Dues will captivate listeners with its melodic and rhythmic invention and musical virtuosity. “Confessin’ My Dues is yet another example of Terry Robb doing what he does best – leaving us with a sense of awe and joy with every note he plays. It’s a winning formula that continues to lead the pack.”
