Nick Vigarino's Meantown Blues
Nick Vigarino radiates an unpredictable fervor with slashing slide guitar, powerful vocals, funky licks, modern lyrics, and his ‘slop jar delta funk’ blues. His style elevates the ‘blues’ to a place where roots are respected, yet nudged towards the future. He consistently captures, and then rivets listeners with precise, passionate performances. Nick took 2013’s Best of the Blues Award for Lifetime Achievement as well as the Best Duo Act for 2013. The Washington Blues Society also awarded Nick the 2012 Best Slide Blues Guitar award. Having earned finalist status at the 2011 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Nick Vigarino is now globally recognized as one of the top blues acts in the world.
