A jewel of American guitarmanship.” – Vintage Guitar Magazine


Tom Feldmann burst out of Minneapolis with an authentic take on acoustic blues unlike anything heard in years. Gifted with fine slide and fingerstyle chops, he also possesses a strong, gritty voice.Feldmann taught himself to play guitar at the age of 17, spending untold hours dissecting original recordings by everyone from Charley Patton to Skip James, Bukka White to – yes, of course – Robert Johnson.  His debut album was released in 1999 and Tom has since spent the years writing, touring and recording his own original compositions as well as carrying on the tradition of solo acoustic country blues.Feldmann leapt to fame when about a decade or so ago, he released what, for most, would be a whole lifetime of instructional videos in just a handful of years, first with Stefan Grossman’s Guitar Workshop, and now on his own  Tom has also contributed to Acoustic Guitar Magazine, Vintage Guitar Magazine and assisted Jorma Kaukonen at his infamous Fur Peace Ranch from 2015-2021.Folklorist, ethnomusicologist and musician Alan Lomax once said, “You can’t kill off a culture until you kill the last person who carries it.” That statement resonates deep within Tom Feldmann as for nearly half his life he has carried on the traditions of the acoustic country blues recorded in the 1920’s and 30’s.
