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.
A new album by one of the very few French bluesmen of international reputation regularly touring abroad and collaborating with American luminaries such as Kid Ramos, Junior Watson, RJ Mischo or Big Sandy.

“This album really does represent a full circle of blues for me. Eight of the tunes are new compositions and three tunes here represent songs I wrote as much as 30 to 45 years ago when I was leader and front man for the original Roomful of Blues in the 1970s. We hope you enjoy our back to the basics approach to the music here. Just straightforward small band, old school blues.” - Duke Robillard
