George Worthmore, a star in the New York City music scene for over twenty years, began with a one-year stint as a guitarist with Kinky Friedman. He's played backup guitar for Bo Diddley, Ben E. King, Screamin' Jay Hawkins, Lou Christy, and The Platters. He has also played shows as a second guitarist with Hot Tuna.
He emigrated to South Africa in 1997 where he owned and operated the world famous Blues Room, that country's number one, award winning, live music venue.
Since 2004 he has expanded his performing into film and TV and has acted with William H. Macy, Robert Vaughn, and Ron Perlman.
His current show is a tour de force of solo acoustic guitar, from Ragtime to Blues, with some Bach thrown in for the more serious appreciators of the instrument. The music is interlaced with humorous comments and amusing stories about the songs and his experiences.
