Cotuit Center for the Arts is pleased to welcome Cape Cod’s longtime favorite roots and blues legend George Gritzbach and his Band back to our Main Stage.
Strongly rooted in roots and rhythm and blues music, Gritzbach is known for his innovative original songs. Gritzbach studied under guitar great Rev. Gary Davis early in his career.
Gritzbach has played with such musical greats at B.B. King, Bonnie Raitt, Robert Cray, Dr. John, John Lee Hooker and others in a variety venues: nightclubs, performing arts centers, festivals, and more. Over the years, he has toured the US, Canada, and Europe, and his previous album, “The Sweeper,” was released on labels in Europe.
The Washington Post called Gritzbach an “exceptional songwriter” and described a recent CD as “as good and surprising as he is in person, with wonderful original material and knock-out slide guitar work.” The Boston Globe called Gritzbach a “sizzling hot, no-holds barred electric bluesman” and “one of the finest guitar players in America.” Frets Magazine wrote “exquisitely gritty and gravely on one cut, mellow and clear on the next…excellent vocal style."
Rain Date Policy: In case of a cancellation due to weather, the show will be rescheduled for the following Monday if possible. The Box Office will advise all ticket holders.
