The cosmic love child of Howlin Wolf and Link Wray! Known as a “musician’s musician,” Alvin Youngblood Hart’s praises have been sung by everyone from Bob Dylan to Eric Clapton and Mick Taylor.
Since the release of his 1996 debut recording, the all-acoustic BIG MAMA’S DOOR, Hart has relayed his eclectic musical message around the world. 2004 saw his first GRAMMY nomination and 2005 his first win. An evening with his all-electric Muscle Theory is exactly as it sounds: powerful, visceral, intelligent and audacious.
“One of the most original and exciting artists of this generation.” RETRO
“Impressive isn’t the word… his eclecticism puts him in a class of his own” INDEPENDENT
“Hart is something else. Dizzyingly versatile.” MOJO
