We are delighted to announce Eric Bibb to headline Sunday at the festival.
Blues meets gospel and soul when Eric Bibb sings from a beautifully realised repertoire of soulful, gospel-infused folk and blues; a melding of traditional rootsy American style with a subtle contemporary sensibility.
Those who have followed Bibb’s career, know that Bibb owes much of his success to the subtle balance he has achieved between tradition and modernity. This is true of his music, and even more so of his lyrics, as he treats themes such as love, the universality of man, and his belief in mankind with a sincerity that never sounds jejune, a simplicity that’s never trivial, an empathy that carefully avoids pathos.
