Born in Brighton, England, Roger Hubbard is one of the UK’s major exponents of early blues and slide guitar.
In 1966 he was playing at folk clubs in the Brighton area. In 1968, continuing an interest in country and delta blues,
  he started his own blues clubs in Lewes and Brighton. Along with his fellow musicians Sam Mitchell and Dick Wardell, there were
                 guest performances by Jo-Ann Kelly and her brother Dave Kelly, Simon Prager, Steve Rye, Bob Hall, Graham Hine, Andy Fernbach and Tony McPhee.                             
In December 1970 Roger opened for Muddy Waters in Brighton.

Muddy Waters was quoted in SOUNDS Magazine as saying,
“Roger Hubbard is as good as any blues guitarist in the U.K. or the United States”.    

His first album Brighton Belle Blues was  recorded in 1970 by Nick Perls for his US label Blue Goose which also
included new albums from the legendary bluesmen :  Son House, Sam Chatmon, Yank Rachell and Bill Williams.
Larry Johnson, Jo-ann Kelly, Roy Bookbinder, John Miller, Woody Mann and Graham Hine were also on the label.
 Roger used Roy Bookbinder’s Martin SOM 28 for most of the tracks and his own Levin for the slide tracks.

“..he could be one of the most exciting acoustic guitarists to come along since John Fahey. Whatever he does, he has created in this record
a sort of monument to the full flowing of white blues scholarship...”
 Timothy Ferris (editor)  ROLLING STONE  February 1972

Nick Perls was a key figure on the American blues trail, rediscovering the likes of Son House and Skip James.
Having played his 1935 National Steel Duolian for many years, Roger also plays an electric resonator guitar made and designed by himself  known as The Hub
His song “Home Lovin’ Man” was recorded by US blues man Eric Bibb on his 2003 album Natural Light .
