Jimmy Herring is one of the most versatile and well-respected guitar players playing today, with a style that encapsulates the harmonic sophistication of jazz and fusion and balances this with the raw energy and dynamic delivery of classic rock and blues.

Add to this the improvisational flair of a jam band master and a little bluegrass and country, all delivered with phenomenal technique, and we’re in the right ballpark.
