ABOUT CATFISH KEITH: Blues singer, songwriter and bottleneck slide guitarist Catfish Keith has established himself as one of the most exciting country blues performers of our time. Catfish's innovative style of foot-stomping, deep delta blues and American roots music has spellbound audiences the world over.

A two-time W. C. Handy Award nominee for BEST ACOUSTIC BLUES ALBUM, Catfish has six NUMBER ONE independent radio chart-topping albums to his credit, and packs houses from coast-to-coast with his dynamic stage show. The twenty-year veteran has toured the U.K. and Europe over a dozen times to wide acclaim, headlining major music festivals, and appearing with legends John Lee Hooker, Robert Cray, Koko Taylor, Taj Mahal, Leo Kottke, Jessie Mae Hemphill, Johnny Shines and many, many others.

Acoustic Guitar "One of the most exciting guitarists of any genre. Pulling blues out of the sky, Catfish Keith lays down a foot-stomping groove. Keith's great love and delight in this music make 'Twist It, Babe!' completely irresistible."

Big City Blues "One of the finest acoustic bluesmen in America. Every fan of acoustic blues should have all six of his discs in their collection. Every record label in America should be engaged in a bidding war. This man is flat-out spectacular!"
