Bluesman John Hammond stands as one of the world’s premier acoustic blues artists—one of only a handful who were on the scene of the first blues renaissance in the ’60s. He received 2015 Blues Music Awards for Best Acoustic Artist and Best Acoustic Album for his latest release, Timeless. Add ‘em to the 22 nominations and 10 wins he’s already received, in addition to a Grammy and eight Grammy noms, making him one of the most lauded artists in the genre.
He has performed or recorded with Jimi Hendrix (discovered while playing in John’s band), Eric Clapton, Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Duane Allman, Mike Bloomfield, JJ Cale, Tom Waits, The Band, John Lee Hooker, Dr. John, and many more.
