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.”

Rory has so much passion, soul, and depth, and she connects to an audience like only a handful of performers I’ve seen. Besides being an amazing country blues and slide guitarist, singer, and songwriter, Rory is also one of the most qualified interpreters of classic blues. There are few players with a biography as rich as Rory’s, who started her career at 14, playing and hanging around with legends such as Mississippi Fred McDowell and Son House. Her latest album is A Woman’s Soul: A Tribute to Bessie Smith.
