Duke Robillard is a Grammy nominated blues guitarist and singer. Robillard was a founding member of blues and swing band Roomful of Blues, a member of The Fabulous Thunderbirds (replacing Jimmie Vaughan) and has released over 30 albums under his own moniker. An accomplished bluesman, Robillard has won a handful of Blues Music Awards over the years, including Best Blues Guitarist four out of five years (2000, 2001, 2003, 2004) and most recently in 2016 for Best Acoustic Blues album of the year, The Acoustic Blues of Duke Robillard.

He has also notched two Grammy nominations for Best Traditional Blues Album, 2006’s Guitar Groove-A-Rama and 2009’s Stomp! The Blues Tonight. Ever the versatile performer, Robillard has also incorporated everything from jazz to swing to jump-style R&B Blues into his music and collaborated with a who’s who of music legends from Tom Waits, Bob Dylan, Dr. John, John Hammond and a host of others. In fall 2017, Robillard released a new album with a delightful collection of swing tunes from the 20’s and 30’s on MC records entitled “Duke Robillard and his Dames of Rhythm” featuring special guests Sonny Crownover, Madeleine Peyroux, Catherine Russell and Maria Muldaur.
