Terry Robb
Terry Robb is one of the top acoustic blues guitarists of our time. His signature
fingerpicking style has earned him international acclaim from worldwide audiences, music
critics and his distinguished peers. Incorporating elements from the Mississippi Delta music
tradition, ragtime, country, swing and jazz, Robb has built a unique blues sound that has made
him a legend in his prolific music career spanning more than four decades.

The multitude of awards Terry Robb has received speak to his seminal talent as a blues
guitarist. Robb has been inducted into both the Oregon Music Hall of Fame and the Cascade
Blues Association Hall of Fame. He single-handedly defined the Muddy Award for Best
Acoustic Guitar, winning the honor 19 consecutive years from 1992 until 2011. Upon his
retirement from the competition in 2011, the award was renamed the Terry Robb Best
Acoustic Guitar Muddy Award to honor his landmark contributions to blues music. In 2017,
he received the Paul deLay Muddy Award for Lifetime Achievement.

Robb was born in British Columbia, raised in the United States and currently resides in
Portland, Oregon. He achieved greatness at an early age, performing with Ramblin Rex of
Frank Zappa / Captain Beefheart fame, Canned Heats Henry Vestine, and steel string guitar
icon John Fahey. At age twenty-four, Robb produced and played accompaniment on
Faheys album Let Go, which garnered a four-star review by Rolling Stone and led to
numerous subsequent collaborations for which Robb served as Faheys producer and session
guitarist.

As an acclaimed producer and session guitarist, Robb has contributed to many award-winning
projects. He produced Alice Stuarts album Cant Find No Heaven, nominated for Grammy
and W.C. Handy awards. With more than 15 releases under his name, Robbs recordings
feature collaborations with John Fahey, Eddy Clearwater, Maria Muldaur, Ike Willis, Curtis
Salgado, and Glen Moore. He has toured nationally with Buddy Guy and Steve Miller,
performed on NBCs Late Night with Conan OBrien, and shared the stage with B.B.
King, Albert Lee, Joe Cocker, Bo Diddley, Robert Cray, George Thorogood, Leo Kottke, Rick
Wakeman and many more all-stars.
Steeped in Americana ethnomusicology, Robb has been featured in numerous
documentary films, books and articles profiling American roots and blues music and the
luminaries with whom he has worked. These include the documentary films Touch Me
Someplace I Can Feel about the late cartoonist John Callahan and Portland Mojo: How
Stumptown Got the Blues, and the biography Dance of Death: The Life of John Fahey,
American Guitarist.
