Hirsch is every bit as good as the best of his peers, but lesser known, and he surely should be considered as one of the best, if unsung, blues musicians in the USA.
If his CDs are not yet in your collection, or if you have a chance to see him, Stan Hirsch is all that!"

Stan Hirsch: Country Blues Artist
Stan Hirsch's style follows in the footsteps laid down by those great country bluesmen like Lightnin' Hopkins, Mance Lipscomb, John Lee Hooker, Fred McDowell, R.L. Burnside, Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters and John Hurt. But he will also take a Hendrix ballad or a Chuck Berry rocker and interpret it as though it was written for an acoustic country bluesman.
I believe that this quote from the blues aficionado/journalist/concert promoter Michael Koster says it best. "Appealing to blues fans and lovers of acoustic guitar in general, his sound - which manages to sound unique and familiar at the same time - falls somewhere between old-school country blues and greasy clubhouse. The result is unwaveringly tasty, in a home-fried kind of way."
