Guitarist and singer Eric Bibb's music crosses folk, gospel-infused acoustic blues and down-home country, steeped in rural Louisiana.
Bibb's father, Leon Bibb, a senior figure on the New York folk scene of the 1960s, gave his son his first guitar when he was 7 and introduced him to a who's-who of musical icons. Eric's godfather was actor singer and activist Paul Robeson, and his uncle was jazz pianist and composer John Lewis.
Bibb performs at 8 p.m. Saturday, July 12, at the Conway Muse, 18444 Main St., Conway, and at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, July 13, at the Harrison Festival of the Arts in Harrison Hot Springs, B.C.
Tickets for the Conway are $29, through Brown Paper Tickets.
Tickets for the B.C. show are $25 general, $22 seniors and children (Canadian currency), at harrisonfestival.com.
