Big Ron Hunter - Thursday, September 7th

Big Ron Hunter

Big Ron Hunter, a native of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, learned guitar from his father when he was a young boy; he also received tutelage from the late Guitar Gabriel. Virtually unknown outside his circle of family, friends and acquaintances, Hunter would seem to be representative of the prototypical blues (or folk) “discovery”- a workingman who has spent most of his life playing and singing primarily for his own satisfaction.

Hunter​, often referred to as the 'worlds happiest bluesman' ​ plays and sings his own songs, combining a bluesy, yet sweet and melodic voice with his original brand of uplifting, hard-banging, acoustic blues.
