Albert Castiglia, Smith’s Olde Bar —Blues rocking guitarist Castiglia goes it alone after a few well-received albums and tours where he shared the spotlight with fellow six-stringer and “blood brother” Mike Zito. He tours behind a new solo release, Righteous Souls, recorded for Zito’s label, featuring a plethora of guests like Joe Bonamassa, Kingfish and others firmly in his genre. Castiglia has been releasing music for two decades, resulting in a thick catalog with a dozen albums to choose from but might now be at the peak of his performance powers. Seeing him in this smaller space is a not-to-be missed opportunity for every blues lover. —Hal Horowitz

$20.-27.50. 8:00 p.m. Smith’s Olde Bar, 1578 Piedmont Ave. NE, 30324. 404-875-1522

Event Description

“It may be a bit premature to crown Albert Castiglia America’s newest King of the Blues, but there’s little doubt that he at least deserves the title of heir apparent.” — Miami New Times
Miami-raised Albert Castiglia served an apprenticeship while backing legendary blues musician Junior Wells. He later went on to work with singer Sandra Hall. Never content to allow himself to be confined to any particular category, he embarked on a solo career that’s yielded many critically-acclaimed albums and consist kudos for his exceptional instrumental prowess, his searing vocals, and live performances that have dazzled audiences from coast to coast. It’s little wonder that Miami’s New Times lauded him as South Florida’s “Best Blues Guitarist” or that USA Today was inspired to remark “It’s a revelation to discover the thrilling retro-electric blues from this astonishing young guitarist.” M Music & Musicians once noted, “His back-to-basics approach follows in the footsteps of those who fostered the blues in the Mississippi Delta and the smoky late-night haunts of Chicago.” After the highly successful and critically acclaimed release of Masterpiece on Gulf Coast Records, Castiglia was nominated for two Blues Music Awards in the categories of Blues Rock Album of the Year and Blues Rock Artist of the Year and won Blues Rock Album of the Year..
