A professional musician for more than 30 years, Thad Beckman has paid his dues on the dusty roads which run from California to New Jersey to Texas to Amsterdam to Vienna and points in between. His finely-crafted original songs are the story of life, the voice of modern America...from the growling delta blues of the Deep South to evocative contemporary folk blues...bound by the common thread of experience gleaned from the road. As a guitarist, Thad Beckman has been hired by Bo Diddley, The Shirelles, Earl Thomas, Tom Russell and as a bandleader has found himself sharing the stage with such renowned artists as B.B. King, Albert Collins, James Cotton, The Band, Emmylou Harris, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks, Los Lobos, Dave Alvin, Jimmy Webb, and The Flatlanders to name a few. Thad has also recorded six album projects, all of which received outstanding press. Join him as he share his stories and songs with some of his favorite local musicians.
