Jonathan Glanzberg has been a favourite on the Barcelona music scene for more than a decade. His music is inspired by the traditional blues of musicians like Robert Johnson and Son House, but his interpretation of their music is modern and very much his own. He has performed at the Philadelphia Folk Festival, The Seattle Folk Festival, and El Festival Internacional de Blues de Cerdanyola. His music repertoire includes Mississippi John Hurt, Skip James, Bo Carter, Jellly Roll Morton, Mose Allison and his own compositions.
