Cotuit Center for the Arts presents Cape Cod’s longtime favorite roots and blues legend George Gritzbach and his Band on Thursday, September 16, at 7:30 PM.

Strongly rooted in roots and rhythm and blues music, Gritzbach is known for his innovative original songs. Gritzbach studied under guitar great Rev. Gary Davis early in his career.

Gritzbach has played with such musical greats at B.B. King, Bonnie Raitt, Robert Cray, Dr. John, John Lee Hooker and others in a variety venues: nightclubs, performing arts centers, festivals, and more. Over the years, he has toured the US, Canada, and Europe, and his previous album, “The Sweeper,” was released on labels in Europe.

This concert will feature songs from his soon-to-be released all-original CD, “Roots, Rhythm & Blues.”

Gritzbach is backed by a seasoned rhythm section featuring Scott Lariviere on bass and back-up vocals, Christian McCarthy on drums, Johnny Menezes on keyboards, Peter Murray on saxophones and percussionist Mike Dunford.

The Washington Post called Gritzbach an “exceptional songwriter” and described a recent CD as “as good and surprising as he is in person, with wonderful original material and knock-out slide guitar work.” The Boston Globe called Gritzbach a “sizzling hot, no-holds barred electric bluesman” and “one of the finest guitar players in America.” Frets Magazine wrote “exquisitely gritty and gravely on one cut, mellow and clear on the next…excellent vocal style.
