With the promise of playing a bunch of tunes from his newly released album “No Regrets”, Albert returns to the Hall armed and ready to blow us away....again ! Undoubtedly one of the finest blues singer/guitarists on the scene today, Albert continuously packs the Hall on his annual visit and we expect the same this time around. So get ready blues fans, its gona be great night of wailin’ vocals and soulful licks from one of the true masters of the Blues.
Breaking every cliché associated with the blues while producing some of the most powerful music of the 21st century comes as natural to Albert Cummings as swinging a hammer while constructing one of his award-winning custom built homes. The Massachusetts native learned the requisite three chords on the guitar from his father, but then switched to playing banjo at age 12 and became a fan of bluegrass music. Like everything he tackles, he threw himself headlong into the pursuit, going to festivals and winning several picking contests in high school. Before graduating he heard the early recordings of Stevie Ray Vaughan, however, and was floored by the virtuosity. While in college in 1987 he saw Vaughan perform and he returned to the guitar with a new outlook and resolve. He had another tradition to live up to first, however, and he studied the building trade in order to follow his family into the home building business. Not until he was 27, an age when other musicians were either already established or had long ago put their dream aside for the realities of life, did Albert finally decide to go for it.
