Praise For Giles Robson
There are thousands of so-called ‘Blues’ players out there and 99% aren’t worth five minutes of serious listening. Then there is Giles Robson and his Blues is pure, natural and deep into the groove of it all. He is probably the best modern harmonica player, British, European OR American. There is so much ordinary and pedestrian Blues out there but when you come across a true maestro, it is worth cherishing.” MUSIC NEWS, UK
