The cosmic American love child of Howlin' Wolf and Link Wray!


Alvin Youngblood Hart calls himself "the Cosmic American Love Child of Howlin' Wolf and Link Wray." What this means for you is a blues show with no boundaries and plenty of energy. An admirer of blues category-crosser Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown, Hart drops country, ska, and more into his shows without breaking a sweat. And at the root of it all is some great finger-picking Delta blues guitar. Whether he's playing a solo acoustic show or fronting an electric band, this Oakland-born guitarist who has appeared in films by both Wim Wenders ("The Soul of a Man") and Martin Scorsese ("The Blues") is a monster creative figure, and every show of his is an adventure ride. It's been many years since we last heard Alvin Youngblood Hart at The Ark, so don't delay on tickets for this.
