A first class line-up of blues rock...

Alastair Greene

Alastair Greene’s musical journey has been anything but traditional. His combination of Blues, Southern Rock, and Jam Band sensibilities has been thrilling audiences for nearly two decades. Greene’s rock and blues credentials include eight years of international touring on guitar and vocals with the Alan Parsons Project, and major dates with Starship featuring Mickey Thomas, plus many guest appearances with such luminaries as Eric Burdon, Walter Trout, Coco Montoya, Savoy Brown, and Debbie Davies. He is a longtime regular and host at the Memphis-based Blues Foundation events, performances and showcases, has been a featured performer at the Big Blues Bender and the Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise, and traversed the globe touring with Sugaray Rayford’s band, which was nominated for a 2020 Blues Music Award

Alastair's mastery of traditional blues tunings, slide, string bending and grooves are as much a part of the foundation as the hard driving, rocking energy. As numerous greats have shown, blues and rock don't always have to be either/or.

"Blues has always reflected the other musics of its time. Happily for we listeners, Alastair is a master of rocking blues (or is it the other way  around?), and it will be joyous finding out over the coming decades where the blend takes him -and us.” – Dick Shurman - Blues producer and historian
