Description

2013 live performance from the blues veteran, an intimate solo show at one of his favourite venues, Chan's in Woonsocket, Rhode Island.

With a career that spans over three decades, John Hammond is one of a handful of blues musicians who was on the scene at the beginning of the first blues renaissance of the mid-60s. Some critics have described Hammond as a white Robert Johnson, and Hammond does justice to classic blues by combining powerful guitar and harmonica playing with expressive vocals and a dignified stage presence.

On 'Timeless' he performs a series of hand picked blues tunes, including songs by Tom Waits, Chuck Berry, Eddie Taylor, Elmore James, Little Walter, Skip James and others.

Although he's a multi-dimensional artist, one thing Hammond has never professed to be is a songwriter. In the early years of his career, it was more important to him that he bring the art form to a wider audience by performing classic - in some cases forgotten - songs. Now, more than 30 years later, Hammond continues to do this, touring all over the US, Canada and Europe from his base in northern New Jersey.
