"Feral blues guitar...non-stop gigging has sharpened his six-string to a razor's edge... his eloquence dazzles...he achieves pyrotechnics that rival Beck and Clapton." -- Rolling Stone
Southern blues-rocker Tinsley Ellis may speak no evil, but he sings and plays with the conviction of, as Billboard wrote, “...a man possessed.” Over the course of a dozen albums and literally thousands of live performances, Ellis easily ranks as one of today’s most electrifying blues-rock guitarists and vocalists. He attacks his music with rock power and blues feeling, in the same tradition as his Deep South musical heroes Duane Allman and Freddie King and his old friends Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes. Atlanta Magazine declared Ellis “the most significant blues artist to emerge from Atlanta since Blind Willie McTell.”
Although he jokes that he’s “the best guitarist you may never have heard of,” hordes of fans worldwide know Tinsley, who is revered among the blues world’s most respected well-traveled statesmen. Join us as we welcome Ellis, and his trio, back to Baltimore for the first time in FAR too long.
