Blues, jazz and rock guitarist and singer Robben Ford is returning to The State for one night only. This supremely talented guitarist has had an illustrious career as a solo artist as well as backing up the who’s who of blues and jazz. Starting in the late ‘60s when he was just 18, his band backed Charlie Musselwhite, then Jimmy Witherspoon and then, in the ‘70s, went on to back up George Harrison on his American tour and Joni Mitchell on Hissing of Summer Lawns and her live album, Miles of Aisles. Ford worked briefly with Miles Davis in the late ‘80s and can be heard on Davis Montreux’ boxed set. Ford released his next album, Talk to Your Daughter, in 1988, a return to his blues roots. In 1989 he joined Philippe Saisse, Marcus Miller and J.T. Lewis in the cast of The Sunday Night Band for the second and final season of NBC’s acclaimed late-night television program Sunday Night. His best work in the ‘90s includes Robben Ford and the Blue Line and Tiger Walk. In addition to recording and touring with his own blues band, Ford continues to tour and play with other bands/artists such as Jing Chi (his fusion band), Gregg Allman and Phil Lesh. He has received nominations for four Grammys and was named one of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of the 20th Century" by Musician magazine.
