Biography

Eric Bibb is one of the most acclaimed blues/roots music artists on the international scene. Working with his father, the legendary Leon Bibb, they have created an historically important tribute to Eric's late Godfather Paul Robeson.

Paul Robeson was a black American renaissance man of the 50's and 60's who was an internationally known actor, singer, writer, athlete and peace activist. He was blacklisted during the McCarthy era. He continued to perform concerts however, playing to American audiences from the Canadian side of the border and by phone to Scottish miners.

Leon Bibb was also a star in New York during the 50's and 60's and was a close friend of Paul Robeson's. Leon now lives in Vancouver and continues to perform and educate.

This heartfelt tribute CD revisits the music of Paul Robeson and his message of 'singing and praising peace through the lands.'
