Bob Margolin
Founder/Chief of A & R

I am a Blues guitar player and vocalist, carrying on the deep Chicago Blues style and creating original music today. From 1973-1980, I played guitar in the band of Chicago Blues legend Muddy Waters, touring worldwide and recording, and learning to play Muddy’s powerful music directly from him.

In 1980, I started my own band. My newest album is “In North Carolina.” Before that, I have recorded two albums for Powerhouse Records, three for Alligator, one for Blind Pig, and The Bob Margolin All-Star Blues Jam on Telarc Records. I have also appeared as a guest or sideman on dozens of Blues albums. In 2008 and 2005, I won the Blues Music Award for “Best Instrumentalist, Guitar.”

Touring full-time today, I work with various gangs of fine Blues musicians, including The Bob Margolin Blues Band and The Bob Margolin All-Star Blues Jam The Legends of Chicago Blues, and The Muddy Waters Reunion Band.

I am also a columnist for Blues Revue magazine and a regular contributor to BluesWax online magazine My Myspace songs are from new album, “In North Carolina.” It features just me playing at home, rather than live or in the studio. The album is on my Steady Rollin’ Records label, part of the VizzTone Label Group, in which I am also a partner. More detailed information is available on my bobmargolin.com website.
