Grammy Award Nomination! “Best Traditional Blues Album”
Legendary guitarist, singer and songwriter Elvin Bishop and his Big Fun Trio — Bob Welsh on piano and guitar and Willy Jordan on cajón (a hand-played Peruvian drumbox) and vocals — received a Grammy Award nomination in the Best Traditional Blues Album category for their 2018 Alligator Records album, Something Smells Funky ‘Round Here. Living Blues calls it “joyously raunchy, fun-loving music.” The album is a follow up to the group’s 2017 Grammy-nominated self-titled debut.
“A legendary guitarist” whose playing is “impeccable and spirited…a distinguished American player.” –Rolling Stone
Deceptively loose but always tight…the raspy chuckle in Bishop’s singing and the sharp sting of his guitar are forceful and fresh, enduring and fun.
–Fresh Air, NPR
Raw and simple and utterly endearing.
Elvin Bishop has always been big fun and is the ringmaster in his own blues circus. With Willy Jordan and Bob Welsh, Bishop whomps out tough, muscular and rollicking boogie-infused blues.
