Heralded as “a living landmark” (Berkeley Express), “a national treasure” (Guitar Extra), and “one of the greatest living acoustic blues artists” (Blues Revue), Rory Block has committed her life and her career to preserving the Delta blues tradition and bringing it to life for 21st century audiences around the world. A traditionalist and an innovator at the same time, she wields a fiery and haunting guitar and vocal style that redefines the boundaries of acoustic blues and folk. The New York Times declared: “Her playing is perfect, her singing otherworldly as she wrestles with ghosts, shadows and legends.”

Her performances are a perfect balance of passion and precision. “Her voice is magic, and her approach to blues guitar is clean, restrained and just damn fine beautiful.”

Seats in the orchestra pit include access to a 6pm VIP reception prior to the show. For others, the doors will open at 6:30 for this reserved seating show. This event is expected to last two and a half hours.
