Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Eric Bibb (born August 16, 1951) is an American acoustic blues singer-songwriter. He is based in London and launched his career in Europe. Today he lives in Finland. Bibb's father, Leon Bibb, is a singer in musical theatre who made a name for himself as part of the 1960s New York folk scene. His uncle was the jazz pianist and composer John Lewis, of the Modern Jazz Quartet. Family friends included Pete Seeger, and actor/singer/activist Paul Robeson, Bibb's godfather. He was given his first steel-string acoustic guitar aged seven. Growing up surrounded by talent, he recalls a childhood conversation with Bob Dylan, who, on the subject of guitar playing, advised the 11-year-old Bibb to "Keep it simple, forget all that fancy stuff."show more
