As the godson of Paul Robeson, the nephew of John Lewis, and the son of Leon Bibb, Eric Bibb was raised in an environment where music mattered crucially. He brings that same intensity, along with what the Dayton Daily News calls “grace, elegance and gentleness,” to the concert stage as a mature and increasingly popular performer.

Eric’s breakout performance at the London Blues Festival thrust him into the front ranks among blues and songwriting circles in Europe, where he has lived for most of his adult life. In recent years, North American audiences too have experienced his “stripped-down acoustic blues that quietly rocks the soul” (FMQB). He is equally at home at jazz festivals (San Francisco, Montreal), blues festivals (Poconos, Cognac), world music festivals (Chicago), folk festivals (Philadelphia, Edmonton,Vancouver), and performing arts venues (Skirball Center, University of Vermont, University of Michigan).

A performance by Eric Bibb is an enriching experience, both musically and spiritually. His music, like his personality, is intimate, assured and passionate.

Mainstage Lounge Host: The French Goat – Concert ticket holders may enjoy food and beverage before the show and at Intermission for only $5. Purchase tickets in advance or at the door. Entry limited to 100 people.
