Description

With Migration Blues Eric Bibb reminds us that if we look at the history of the world we discover that we all have migrants among our ancestors. Eric also draws a parallel between the former African American sharecroppers leaving the brutal segregation and economic misery of the rural South for the industrial cities of the North and the current migratory movement to Europe of the refugees from the war-torn countries of the Middle East and Africa.

This album features a trio comprised of Eric and two stellar guests: JJ Milteau (harmonica) and Michael Jerome Browne (guitar, fiddle, banjo?) and, occasionally, a few more classy performers.

Migration Blues will certainly be considered one of Eric Bibb's major albums due to the high quality of the songwriting, the raw emotion delivered by Eric's voice, the richness of the orchestration (despite its sobriety) and the seriousness and topicality of its main theme.
