Event Profile

Steeped in the deepest traditions of blues guitar, San Francisco Bay Area artist Tommy Castro has been one of the genre's leading lights for over a decade now. Billboard magazine said of him: "[Castro is] a blues phenom, who combines the earthy soulfulness of Albert Collins and B.B. King with the polish of Robert Cray."
True enough: Castro's vicious, clean blues style has made his albums (1996's "Exception to the Rule," 1997's "Can't Keep a Good Man Down," 1999's "Right as Rain," 2001's "Guilty of Love" and 2003's "Gratitude") must-haves for blues fans everywhere.

Castro released "Soul Shaker" in February 2005.
