Roger Hubbard (UK)

Rock Home Foundation presenteert:
Roger Hubbard Live @ Bel-Air, "Shut Up & Listen" Lazy Monday Sessions.

Born in 1950 in Brighton, England, Roger remains one of the UK's major exponents of the slide guitar. At the age of 15 he was starting to play at folk clubs in the Brighton area. In 1968, continuing an interest in Country and Delta blues, he started his own club above "The Lewes Arms" in Lewes, Sussex. Along with fellow musicians Sam Mitchell and Dick Wardell, the club featured guest performances by Jo-Ann Kelly and her brother Dave Kelly, Simon Prager, Steve Rye, Bob Hall, Graham Hine, Andy Fernbach and Tony McPhee (who was later to form the Groundhogs). The club later moved to Brighton. In early December 1970 Roger opened for Muddy Waters at The University of Sussex, Brighton.

The venue was the Chemistry lecture hall and organized with the help of John Altman. He also appeared at the 1971 Cambridge Folk Festival and on the first pyramid stage at Glastonbury the same year. In 1972 Muddy Waters was quoted in SOUNDS Magazine as saying, "Roger Hubbard is as good as any blues guitarist in the U.K. or the United States".

Spencer Bohren (US)

Rock Home Foundation presenteert:
Spencer Bohren Live @ Bel-Air, "Shut Up & Listen" Lazy Monday Sessions.

Born into a gospel-singing family in the wind-swept prairies of Wyoming in 1950, Spencer Bohren began singing and playing music as youngster. At fourteen, inspired by the folk music he heard on the radio, Spencer picked up a guitar and within a few weeks started performing in public. He immediately delved deeply into America’s treasure of blues, country, gospel and folk music, soaking up guitar styles and historical details. In the 1960s and 1970s, Spencer played with rock, country and blues bands throughout the western US. By the mid-1970s, Spencer and his wife, Marilyn, found a spiritual home in the city of New Orleans, and started their family there.

New Orleans had a profound effect on Spencer, and he quickly became a fixture on the local music scene. Spencer began touring, this time in the southern U.S. Before long he made the daring decision to bring his family on the road so they could be together. For seven years they lived on the road, Spencer performing around the U.S., sharing his love of America’s music and singing his own original songs. He also began a recording career, which has produced 16 albums.

In 1997, Spencer developed Down the Dirt Road Blues, his award-winning history of American music, which he has presented to 30,000 students of all ages, as well as concert audiences in America and Europe. His educational offerings have grown to include visual art, guitar workshops, and talks on songs of protest and music business, inspiring countless budding musicians.
