Eric Bibb

We proudly present a unique festival opening evening headline concert with the legendary Eric Bibb at St Mary’s church, Rye.

Two-time Grammy Award nominee Eric Bibb will be joining us for one of only two UK performances this summer!

The world-renowned Blues troubadour and his band will perform the classics he is known and loved for, whilst introducing brand new material from his much-anticipated forthcoming album, Ridin’, which was released in spring 2023.

Ridin’ follows on from the multiple award-winning, critically acclaimed album Dear America; a wonderful continuation of the vision that informs Eric Bibb’s artistry as a modern-day bluesman. Grounded in blues and folk tradition with contemporary sensibilities, Bibb’s music continues to reflect his thoughts on current world events and his own lived experiences, whilst remaining entertaining, uplifting, inspirational and relevant.

As Blues Brother actor Dan Aykroyd famously declared to Eric: “You are what the blues in the new century should be about”.

“…Bibb possesses one of the most resonant voices in popular music. ” – The Sunday Times

“one of the finest American exponents of acoustic blues, an engaging performer and rousing guitarist who is blessed with a quite remarkable voice.” – The Guardian
