Terry Robb is one of the top acoustic blues guitarists of our time. His signature fingerpicking style has earned him international acclaim from worldwide audiences, music critics and his distinguished peers. Incorporating elements from the Mississippi Delta music tradition, ragtime, country, swing and free jazz, Robb has built a unique blues sound that has made him a legend in his prolific music career spanning more than four decades.
                       
The multitude of awards Terry Robb has received speak to his seminal talent as a blues guitarist. Robb has been inducted into both the Oregon Music Hall of Fame and the Cascade Blues Association Hall of Fame. He single-handedly defined the Muddy Award for Best Acoustic Guitar, winning the honor 19 consecutive years from 1992 until 2011. Upon his retirement from the competition in 2011, the award was renamed the Terry Robb" Acoustic Guitar Muddy Award to honor his landmark contributions to blues music. In 2017, he received the Muddy Award for Lifetime Achievement.
                       
Robb was born in British Columbia, raised in the United States and currently resides in Portland, Oregon. He achieved greatness at an early age, performing with Ramblin Rex of Frank Zappa / Captain Beefheart fame, Canned Heats Henry Vestine, and steel string guitar icon John Fahey. At age twenty-four, Robbs collaboration with Fahey led to producing several of his critically-acclaimed recordings, including "Let Go" which earned Fahey a four-star review by Rolling Stone.
                       
As an acclaimed producer and session guitarist, Robb has contributed to many award-winning projects, including Alice Stuarts Grammy- and W.C. Handy-nominated album, "Cant Find No Heaven." With more than 15 albums under his name, he has collaborated with Eddy Clearwater, Maria Muldaur, Ike Willis, Curtis Salgado, and Glen Moore, toured with Buddy Guy and Steve Miller, and shared the stage with B.B. King, Albert Lee, Joe Cocker, Bo Diddley, George Thorogood, Leo Kottke, Johnny Winter and many more all-stars.

Steeped in Americana ethnomusicology, Robb has been featured in numerous documentary films, books and articles profiling American roots and blues music and the luminaries with whom he has worked. These include the films "Touch Me Someplace I Can Feel" about the late cartoonist John Callahan and "Portland Mojo: How Stumptown Got the Blues," and the book Dance of Death: The Life of John Fahey, American Guitarist.
