About Tom Feldmann
“His are some of the best picked blues I’ve heard, and I’ve heard lots!” – Jorma Kaukonen (Hot Tuna, Jefferson Airplane)
Tom Feldmann has immersed himself in Country Blues for over 20yrs, spending untold hours dissecting original recordings by everyone from Charley Patton to Skip James, Bukka White to – yes, of course – Robert Johnson. At the age of 38, Feldmann is a highly sought after performer and instructor most noted for his work with Jorma Kaukonen’s Fur Peace Ranch, Stefan Grossman’s Guitar Workshop, Acoustic Guitar Magazine and Vintage Guitar Magazine.
“As a teacher, Feldmann is ideal; as a blues historian, he’s downright heroic. His understanding and explanation of the country blues greats is masterful.” – Vintage Guitar Magazine, Michael Dregni, 2014
Tom Feldmann began performing in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area when he was 19yrs old which led to his first CD release in 1999 and several years of touring full time throughout North America. Now, Feldmann splits his time between his musical work and life at home with his wife and 2 daughters age 9 and 6.
In 2015, Feldmann launched his own online guitar lesson site (playcountryblues.com) that offers lessons on Delta/Country Blues, Gospel, Bottleneck slide and general fingerpicking.
Be sure to check out Tom Feldmann’s tour and workshop schedule as well as his new CD, Dyed In The Wool.
