Rob’s music is Blues/Folk based. You might find him covering a Jazz standard, Robert Johnson, Lyle Lovett or doing a set of his own tunes. His finger-picking guitar style can be traced back to Hot Tuna, Doc Watson and Piedmont Blues . His slide playing is influenced by the late great Johnny Winter, Lowell George and Ry Cooder. For slide he uses a ’29 National,for most of the regular guitar work,a ’35 Epiphone archtop. His songwriting has been heavily influenced by the Texas songwriters and is laced with self-deprecating humor.
Farmers market visitors have enjoyed Rob every year at the market. We’re excited to feature him again on July 29.
