Rory Block Hiawatha Music Festival Performance

Abstract/Description: From the festival program: The daughter of a Greenwich Village sandal maker and influential country fiddle player, Block is a blues guitarist who spent her childhood surrounded by the likes of John Sebastian, John Hammond and Maria Muldaur who frequented her dad’s Saturday afternoon jam sessions. She is a standard bearer for early American roots blues--a celebrated, multi-award winning artist, and a songwriter whose originals ring with unadorned power and truth.
