Rory Block Keepin Outta Trouble album coverAcclaimed acoustic blues guitarist/singer/songwriter Rory Block recently released the sixth in her Mentor Series, in which she performs the songs of country and blues legends whose music has changed her life.

On this album she pays tribute to Bukka White, remembered as a player of National Resonator guitars, who died in 1977.

Since the age of 15, Rory’s distinctive guitar technique (she uses a socket wrench as a slide) has enabled her to tap into the spirit of timeless songs such as Bukka’s Parchman Farm Blues, and Fixin’ To Die Blues – songs that inspired her to include some of her own for this release.

Keepin’ Outta Trouble is out Nov 18 via Only Blues
