“Don’t miss a chance to see him; you are unlikely to hear anything – or anyone better in the fields that Mann has chosen to master.”- The London Times


Among guitarists and critics, Woody Mann is considered a modern master. While the blues are his touchstone, he seems to draw inspiration from every direction, blending a myriad influences with ease and grace.

Pioneering finger-style legend John Fahey said it well: “You can hear classical, jazz and blues approaches somehow converging into a single sparkling sound – a sound completely his own. Woody takes a fresh approach to his blues re-creations and his own compositions defy category. If there was a category simply called ‘great music’ Woody…would belong there.”

Woody Mann received his first musical schooling in the living room of Rev. Gary Davis, the now legendary blues, gospel, and ragtime guitarist. Though Davis died in 1972, his guitar mastery proved to be an indelible influence on his young student and friend. The passion, energy and artistry of Davis’ early work became a lasting touchstone for Mann as he embarked on his own musical journey.

Saturday Oct 1, 2011 - The Woody Mann concert was very nice!  And everyone that attended the work shop was thrilled to have that time close up a persoanl with Woody.
