What a pleasure it is that all the way from America the brilliant John Emil returns to the Number 39. If you've missed him previously, don't waste this opportunity to hear some of the best Amercian roots and blues around.
John Emil, an accomplished singer/songwriter, guitarist, and a master of slide guitar, has delivered show stopping performances at major music festivals like the Telluride Blues and Brews Fest, the Lake Occonee Music Fest, the Florida Folk Festivals and many more.
Equally adept with the acoustic Hawaiian lap steel guitar and Dobro, John Emil first appeared on the South Florida music scene in 2000. Fans hear haunting, subtle hints of Delta bluesmen Son House and Blind Willie Johnson but John ultimately creates a unique style all his own by integrating country blues, folk and bluegrass sounds into his repertoire.
