    Albert Cummings In Concert

    Breaking every cliché associated with the blues while producing some of the most powerful music of the 21st century comes as natural to Albert Cummings as swinging a hammer while constructing one of his award-winning custom built homes.

    Breaking every cliché associated with the blues while producing some of the most powerful music of the 21st century comes as natural to Albert Cummings as swinging a hammer while constructing one of his award-winning custom built homes. Born and raised in Williamstown, local hero Cummings has shared a bill with Double Trouble, the late Stevie Ray Vaughan's rhythm section who also played on and produced his debut recording in 2003, From the Heart (Under the Radar). Blues great B.B. King, who Cummings acknowledged with a funky version of 'Rock Me, Baby,' dubbed Cummings "a great guitarist."

    A year later Double Trouble joined Cummings again to create True to Yourself. Tours and shows with blues legends B.B. King, Johnny Winter, Buddy Guy and others brought his music to an audience grateful for the opportunity to be rocked hard by a man possessed to play every song like his life depended on it.

    Working Man (Blind Pig), Cummings's 2006 release, was the culmination of a guitar hero's career just taking off. With his live video of Feel So Good placing #5 on the charts during its first week of release in 2008, Cummings was also selected as BluesWax Artist of the Year.
