In 2016 his last album My Road won two Blues Blast Magazine Award and in 2017 earned Bob three Blues Music Award nominations including a win for Best Male Traditional Blues Artist. In early 2017 Bob was featured on The Last Waltz 40 Tour, celebrating the movie and concert. Bob was in the original, playing with Muddy Waters and The Band. Bob led songs played with Warren Haynes, Don Was, Jamey Johnson, Taj Mahal, Dr. John, Michael McDonald, John Medeski, and more. In 2018, Bob will be playing festivals, workshops, clubs, and overseas tours. • with his trio • with the Bobs of the Blues, Bob Corritore & Bob Stroger • as a guest with other bands, making a stronger billing than separately. • solo Bob leads Mannish Boy from Last Waltz 40 tour: “Heaven Mississippi” video from My Road: From 1973-80 Bob played in Muddy Waters’ band, appearing on all of the albums Muddy made then and at special shows like The Last Waltz. While leading his band and playing his own music at his own shows, Bob still honors Muddy Waters in his music and special shows. as in December 2017 on this Facebook Live video that got 59,000 views on the Muddy Waters Official Facebook Page. After nearly 50 years of playing the Blues, Margolin should be bestowed with the 'icon' title. He's not just a link to many blues artists now gone from this world…but continues to breathe new life into the genre. Be sure to follow Margolin down his own personal Blues Highway by repeatedly listening to 'My Road'. You won't regret it. (Bill Mitchell/ BluesBytes) ________________________________ Nathan Pope Band My name is Nathan and I am a young blues guitarist from the heart of North Carolina with a great love for the blues. I received my first guitar at the age of 2 and was teaching myself to play by the age of 7. I give credit to my Grandmother, Doris Powell, for her inspiration and love of music. My knowledge and capabilities began to expand when I found the local blues society and started joining in on the weekly jams. The support and knowledge that I have gained from these jams has boosted my confidence and taken my playing ability to the next level. In 2015 I gained unparalleled knowledge when I attended the Pinetop Perkins Masterclass workshop in Claksdale Mississippi. The workshop gave the ability to work with the likes of Bob Margolin, Jonn Del Toro Richardson and another young guitarist, Christone "Kingfish" Ingram. I now perform in my own band with two seasoned musicians, Chuck Sirko and Bruce Wassel, as well as on my own acoustically. I have developed a very supportive fan base that enjoys my unique twist on the classics as well as my original tunes.
