  • Description

    Live at The Scala Theatre is the latest recording from blues troubadour Eric Bibb, which follows 2023's Grammy nominated album, Ridin'. Performed and recorded in front of a live audience at Stockholm's Scala Theatre on September 30, 2022, the atmosphere captured in these recordings is electric.

    With a career now spanning five decades, three Grammy nominations, a multitude of Blues Foundation awards and countless more accolades, Eric Bibb has secured his legacy as a legendary figure in the blues and roots genre.

    'Live at The Scala Theatre' contains a selection of songs cherry-picked from Bibb's history, infused with the folk and blues tradition with contemporary sensibilities. The performance features an all-star lineup of musicians including Eric's longtime collaborator, MD and producer Glen Scott on bass, keys, drums and backing vocals, Olle Linder on drums and acoustic bass, Johan Lindstrom on pedal steel and electric guitar, Christer Lyssarides on electric guitar and mandola, Esbjorn Hazelius on fiddle and cittern, Greger Andersson on harp, Lamine Cissokho on kora and vocals, special guest vocalists Sarah Dawn Finer, Rennie Mirro and Ulrika Bibb, as well as string arrangements by Erik Arvinder and David Davidson, performed by Hanna Helgegren and Sarah Cross on violins, Christopher Ohman on viola and Josef Ahlin on cello.

    As Eric reflects on his musical journey, gratitude pervades. Evolution is evident in his voice and guitar playing, with his words grounded in truth and fostering a vision of unity in a world filled with divisive rhetoric. Eric Bibb is more than a blues troubadour - he is a storyteller and philosopher. His legacy is not just in the notes he plays or the stages he graces but in the questions he poses and the hope he instills.
