Singer and guitarist Willie Salomon has devoted himself to the blues and has an authentic and virtuosic approach to playing them. Willie is the “Great German Bluesman”, who conjures rough sounds from his vintage guitar and celebrates the pre-war blues repertoire in a relaxed and loving style. The point is not “nostalgia”, but rather his passion for acoustic “old-time fingerpicking”. “Country, Blues & More” reveals the formidable abilities of this blues songster, who has complete command of slide and ragtime, as well as Delta blues and country pickings.
Willie Salomon is no doubt the most authentic German acoustic blues guitarist, with impressive fidelity to style, be that on the 12-string, the resonator guitar, or on one of his many vintage Gibsons.
