"Bob Margolin continues to stretch his boundaries on every recording, which is just part of what makes him a national treasure."

BOB MARGOLIN, Self-Artisted Booking Agent:
I book myself now and will continue to do so going forward in the New Year - not with any old or new agency.
The fresh result: Three recent Europe trips, I was a featured guest on the Last Waltz 2019 Tour (stay tuned for 2020) and a sold out all-acoustic show and duo shows with Bob Corritore or Jimmy Vivino.
Going forward I'll be on the BB King Tribute in February. I received a Blues Music Award nomination for Best Acoustic Album - thanks VizzTone and BratGirl Media. Voting is now open. I'll be participating in events for the Pinetop Perkins Foundation and I will be everywhere at once at the IBC, showcasing, mentoring, and leading workshops. I’m planning some new exciting collaborations with…you’ll see.
I love to play for you so much and the business part is now easy and direct. For previous and new promoters, or musicians who have shows we can do together, just CONTACT ME direct. We’ll put together smart plans that work well all around, professional, friendly, and honest. I hope all your Blues are musical.
Watch for announcements of a new video, exciting new tours, concerts, collaborations and workshops.
Video Premiere: Bob Margolin "Over Time"
With This Guitar and Tonight – released in October 2019 – blues musician and Muddy Waters collaborator Bob Margolin offers his first all-acoustic album, showcasing the form in its rawest state. Today, we premiere the video for the album cut “Over Time,” a rolling blues ballad that reflects on the past, present and future.
“Like you, I wish I could warn or comfort my younger self,” Margolin told Relix of the clip. “My personal acoustic song ‘Over Time’ sings these Blues for us and Scott Rosenbaum from Red Hawk Films illustrates it with my over time photos from baby to now.“
The Thrill Is Gone - A Tribute To B.B. King
"Woke in a hotel and went to an airport to go home. Happens often...but last night was special. The BB King tribute concert featured so many fine musicians. Even beyond 4 hours of performance, I led 1 song early, it was an amazing opportunity to visit with many of my favorite, many are friends I don’t see often." - Bob Margolin
