Critically acclaimed blues/rock guitar master Albert Castiglia tore the roof off of a packed 9 Wallis crowd in August. Don’t miss his triumphant return to the most intimate, elegant listening room!
As most artists will attest, the most unexpected circumstance can spark artistic inspiration. That’s a fact that hasn’t been lost on singer, songwriter, and guitarist extraordinaire Albert Castiglia. With his latest album, the aptly named Masterpiece, he celebrates an unforeseen triumph — a connection with a daughter he never knew he had. The result is a work that’s both personal and provocative all at the same time.
“I think blues is a wide-open net,” Castiglia once told a reporter. “There are a lot of different ways to do it…I’ve taken a lot of heat for what I do. Some people think I’m too edgy to be considered a blues artist. On the other hand, I don’t think that people like Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf would have wanted me copying them and redoing their stuff. There’s no point in doing that. They would want me to do my own stuff.”
