Feeling a bit camera shy


First things first.. Lightning Hall...?? Wha's dat?? It's a reference to the solo acoustic bluesmen of the 20's and later. Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson, Lightning Hopkins (obviously..), Son House, Charley Patton, and there were many others. That kind of music gave me my earliest desire to learn to play guitar. Things haven't changed....  I just learned more about other kinds of music too.

Lightning Hall is an artist who blends the soulful sound of early
acoustic blues with folk, roots rock and other styles. Like revered
jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt, he plays, and plays well, in spite of
serious burn injuries to his hands. A regular performer in the Albuquerque, NM
area for several years. He grew up in the Gulf Coast city of Galveston, TX.
where he acquired a taste for blues, southern rock, country, R&B...
Southern music in general.

He sings, plays guitar and harmonica and writes and performs
original songs and the songs of classic acoustic blues masters like Lightning Hopkins,
Big Bill Broonzy and Muddy Waters and other "folksters". And through the use
of 21st century technology, Lightning Hall has begun performing as a one man
electric blues band.

Lightning Hall is committed to creating and performing
quality original music with an original voice that is still rooted in American
music, especially early, acoustic blues. He refuses to be a "walking jukebox" of
the endlessly rehashed Contemporary Top 40 and Classic Rock tunes so many bands perform, preferring to present covers of music less often heard, and with an authentic
and individual take.
