Robbie Laws About the Educator

Robbie Laws is one of the most decorated and in demand blues guitarists in the Pacific Northwest. He has been honored with 21 Portland Cascade Blues Association Muddy Awards, nine of which were for ‘Best Electric Guitarist", the “Best Blues Act” award from the Seattle based Washington Blues Society and most recently, the “Outstanding Achievement in Blues” award from the Portland Music Association.

Having played with guitar legends from Albert Collins to Ronnie Earl, Robbie is an internationally recognized blues guitar master who has thrilled festival and concert audiences for over 15 years with his sheer technical prowess on the guitar, his soulful voice, impressive stage presence, and likeable personality. Laws possesses the inherent ability to authentically convey styles such as 1940’s, jump swing, traditional country blues, Piedmont, Delta, early Texas and Chicago, yet is comfortable playing uptown jazz as well as progressive rock.

Robbie has shared the stage with a long list of great legends and has performed at many notable blues festivals as well as being a regular favorite at arguably the best and second largest blues festival in the United States, the Portland Waterfront Blues Festival. Throughout his career, Laws has released six recordings with rave reviews and notable airplay up and down the West Coast, including Alaska and Canada. All of his previous recordings have been awarded "Best Recording of the Year" in the Pacific Northwest. Robbie's latest recording, Between the Lines, was released in December 2013 and he is currently in the studio working on his next album.
