Guitar on the Brain
Blues infused songs of trial and triumph.
Bruce Zimmerman is a veteran bluesman and singer/songwriter who has been captivating audiences for decades.
Since picking up a guitar at age five, Bruce’s journey has taken him from a first recording session at the famous Sun Studios, though tours that have included 6 countries and 28 states, to a 26 year stint fronting the house band at Port Cape Girardeau.
Bruce’s career has seen him share the stage with Rufus Thomas, Lee Oskar (War), Kimberley Dahme (Boston), and “Skunk” Baxter (Doobie Brothers), to name only a few.
Called “the legend,” the “elder statesman of the blues,” and “a guitar player’s guitar player” by the media, Bruce has much to offer his listeners, including the chance to hear blues played by someone who has actually chopped cotton. A half century of musical experience makes him a virtual musical encyclopedia, at home in a variety of genres. Years on the road find full expression in compelling original compositions that have made him a truly unique singer/songwriter. This accomplished vocalist has long since given up trying to sound like anyone other than Bruce, much to the delight of his audiences.
