Steady Rollin' Bob Margolin

Social Media:
I am a Blues guitar player and vocalist, carrying on the deep Chicago Blues style and creating original music today. From 1973-1980, I played guitar in the band of Chicago Blues legend Muddy Waters, touring worldwide and recording, and learning to play Muddys powerful music directly from him. In 1980, I started my own band. As a leader, I have recorded two albums for Powerhouse Records, three for Alligator, one for Blind Pig, and The Bob Margolin All-Star Blues Jam on Telarc Records. This album was nominated for a 2004 W.C. Handy Award for Traditional Blues Album of the Year. It features Pinetop Perkins, Hubert Sumlin, Carey Bell, Willie Big Eyes Smith, and Mookie Brill and as The Bob Margolin All-Star Band, they were nominated for a Handy Award for Blues Band of The Year in 04 as well. I have also appeared as a guest or sideman on dozens of Blues albums. In 2005, I won the W.C. Handy Award (now called Blues Music Award) for "Best Instrumentalist, Guitar." Touring full-time today, I work with different gangs of fine Blues musicians, including The Bob Margolin Blues Band and The Bob Margolin All-Star Blues Jam The Legends of Chicago Blues, and The Muddy Waters Reunion Band. I am also a senior writer for Blues Revue magazine and a regular contributor to BluesWax online magazine My new album, "In North Carolina," is available at and at my shows and features just me playing at home, rather than live or in the studio. The official release is at the end of Jan. '07, and promotion and distribution will kick in then. The album is on my Steady Rollin' Records label. My Myspace songs are from new album.
