Tom Feldmann

Smokestack Lightnin' Home Page -- The Blues Profile Page

Tom Feldmann is a gifted country bluesman, slippin' and slidin' on his resonator guitars with the soul of a Delta master. Beyond his powerful finger picking and deadly bottleneck work, Feldmann is also a fine singer, his gravelly voice reaching through the decades to evoke the hard-scrabble days of the Depression and life in the Deep South between World Wars I and II. In addition to creating numerous instructional videos for Stefan Grossman's Guitar Workshop (, Feldmann's latest album, Lone Wolf Blues is a master-class of country blues and gospel guitar from the 1920's through '40's.

Since 2011, Feldmann has taught 10 guitar video lessons for Stefan Grossman's Guitar Workshop, distributed worldwide by Mel Bay. In 2013 Tom​ performed at Merlefest alongside Corey Harris & Phil Wiggins, Roy Book Binder, Happy Traum and Chris Smither, taught at Jorma Kaukonen's infamous Fur Peace Ranch and opened shows for David Bromberg and David Lindley.

Feldmann has had feature articles in Vintage Guitar Magazine and Bluesnews Magazine (Germany), and his CD's Tribute (2010) and Lone Wolf Blues (2012) have received rave reviews from Blues Revue Magazine, Living Blues Magazine, Blues in Britain (UK), Blues Matters (UK), Concerto (Austria), Soul Bag (France), Blues PL (Poland) and many other top publications around the globe.
