Todd Albright is a Country Blues, finger-style twelve-string guitar player and singer living in Detroit, Michigan. Todd brings to life an era of Delta greats such as Blind Lemon Jefferson, Sylvester Weaver, and Skip James.
He first heard Country Blues at the age of twelve, and he immediately became a self-taught student of the genre aiming solely to interpret the sounds of the masters. Todd has performed across the U.S solo, alongside his former country blues string band The Staving Chain, and on stage with notable musicians and friends such as Dakota Dave Hull, Roy Book Binder, Charlie Parr, and Paul Geremia.
