Woody Mann is an outstanding singer-songwriter who plays with passion and a deep sensitivity to his music with an easy, laid-back style. He’s a sublime, warm, witty, and hugely talented performer whether playing American acoustic blues, roots or jazz guitar. He’s played and recorded with blues legends Son House and Bukka White, and has appeared alongside some of the best guitarists in the world over the last 30 years.

Mann may be the only guitarist to take lessons from Rev. Gary Davis, study classical music at Julliard, record with Robert Johnson mentor Son House, and receive training in improvisation from jazz pianist Lennie Tristano. If that weren’t enough, he’s certainly the only musician who can add this glowing quote to his resume – “if there was a category simply called ‘great music’, Woody’s music would belong there” – a compliment from guitar legend John Fahey, who’s not a man prone to gushing!
