Among guitarists and critics, Woody Mann is considered a modern master. While the blues are his touchstone, he seems to draw inspiration from every direction with ease and grace.
From his first recording “Stairwell Serenade” He has worked solo and collaborated with blues greats Son House, Bukka White, and John Fahey.
Throughout his career, Woody has not forgotten those early lessons in the Reverend Gary Davis’ living room or the jazz traditions that were his wellspring. He has become one of the world’s renowned guitar masters – bringing the past up to the present – with his own contemporary improvisational style.
“Don’t miss a chance to see him; you are unlikely to hear anything – or anyone better in the field that Mann has chosen to master.” –The Times
