Welcome back, music nerds! My guest this week is the phenomenal guitarist, producer and sideman, Duke Robillard. Duke is a fountain of knowldege about blues, swing, jump and R&B and has been touring and recording in those fields since the early 70’s. His early successes with his band Roomful of Blues gained him noteriety as a guitarist who had processed all of the classic styles and players of those genres but had his own remarkable voice. Duke has gone on to make a boatload of solo albums, and tours with his band all over the world. Duke has also produced lots of records for other artists and played as a sideman to many as well, including a stint in Bob Dylan’s band, and was a part of the sessions for the classic Time Out Of Mind album. We get into all of it here today, as well as some of his greatest influences and early experiences learning to play. Enjoy, share and please subscribe wherever you get your podcasts!
