Blues Harp Maestro

Rick Estrin ranks among the very best harp players, singers and songwriters in the blues world today.

Good happy stuff! Fresh!

Estrin is known for his signature look — beautifully tailored 1940s-era suits, pencil-thin moustache, immaculate pompadour and tinted glasses. The visual image makes such an impression, you can miss the substance of his music.
"When you talk to any of the top harmonica players, they will immediately name Rick as one of the best guys in the world,” says Bruce Iglauer, owner and founder of Alligator, the premiere blues record label.

"The showmanship has sometimes taken people’s focus off what a great musician he really is,” Iglauer says.
