Robbie Hill Band (GBR/FIN)

Robbie Hill on pärit Šotimaalt, kus tal on bluusi sügavaimal tasemel mõistva noore talendi maine. Robbie on tuuritanud risti-põiki läbi Ühendkuningriigi kogudes kogemusi ja imedes ahnelt endasse oma suure kodumaa rikkaliku muusikapärandi mõjusid. Üheks tema mentoriks olev Briti bluusi suurkuju Otis Grand soovitas Hillil silmaringi laiendada ja mujal maailmas ringi vaadata. Robbie ise ütleb, et ,,kui Otis Grand midagi ütleb, siis noor bluesman võtab kuulda”. Hill suundus Skandinaaviasse, kaasas vaid seljakott ja kitarr. Tänaseks on peamiselt Soomes baseeruv Robbie Hill tuntud kui üks Põhjamaade ägedamaid bluusimehi ja oodatud külaline bluusilavadel üle Euroopa.

Within his native Scotland, Robbie Hill had acquired a reputation as a promising young blues artist with a deep level of understanding of the blues. For several years he had been playing up and down the UK, completing his music studies and soaking up the influences of as many of the blues greats he could see. One of these, Otis Grand, advised Hill that it was time to expand his horizons if he was serious about his music. When blues great Otis Grand tells you it’s time to expand your horizons, you listen. Grands suggestion was to head for Finland. Hill heeded his mentor and set out for Scandinavia with little more  than a backpack and a guitar. It didn’t take long for Hill to encounter some superb blues musicians, and has since gained a reputation as one of the most skilled and talented interpreters of the blues of his generation
