Over his 45-year career, guitarist Paul Asbell has performed with Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker and Lightnin’ Hopkins, to name a few. Blessed with a winning combination of technical skill and buoyant creativity, Asbell reimagines blues and jazz standards alongside old-time tunes and original compositions. A native of Chicago, he relocated to Vermont in 1971 and, judging by his onstage success, the Green Mountain State is a musical match made in heaven for Asbell. A founding member of the jazz-fusion group Kilimanjaro and the Unknown Blues Band, the time-tested talent now shines as a solo artist.
