The bluesman Eric Bibb was in Paris to present his latest album, a double CD entitled Global Griot. These 24 songs present a great mix between Blues and African music with as always Eric Bibb's great compositions. The Guitar Channel is very happy to present you this new Guitar-in-Hand interview with the American musician. Summary
Eric Bibb is a very prolific musician who is now releasing Migration Blues, a magnificent album about a theme which is very tragically present in the news. Supported by the French harp player Jean-Jacques Milteau and by Michael Jerome Browne for a multitude of stringed instruments (guitars, mandolin, banjo, etc.), Eric delivers here a masterly work that is a treat to listen to.
It's always a pleasure to do an interview with Eric Bibb as he is very generous and thoughtful in his answers. Eric has just released and album with harp player Jean-Jacques Milteau mostly around Lead Belly songs and a couple pf compositions by the duo.
Guitar wise, in this interview Eric is playing an all mahogany Larson Bros guitar (www.larsonbros.com) built by Maurice Dupont (www.acoustic-guitars.com) in France.
The 16 song album is excellent to revisit with a new twist all the Lead Belly repertoire.

It's a great pleasure for me to present you with a second interview with the great blues man Eric Bibb (aka @ericbibb). The first one is in episode #68.
I had the pleasure this quiet but VERY intense bluesman, believe me, he has a DEEP voice and it is quite a feat to interview such a nice gentleman with such an articulate way to express himself.
His album "Booker's Guitar" is a pure joy and if Eric plays near you, go check him out!
