Michael Roach, one of thirteen children born to Ted and Sadie Roach of Washington, D.C., USA, sings and plays guitar in an East Coast style of blues that dates back to the 1920s. After spending several years learning directly from such well known figures as John Jackson, John Cephas and Jerry Ricks, Michael Roach has developed his own style and is now an exceptional performer. He interacts with his audience and he entertains as he plays. As a cultural arts performer, Michael has promoted African-American culture through the use of blues music. He has lectured for the American Smithsonian Institute and more recently at the Oxford University here in England. He has conducted workshops throughout the USA and Europe. It is through Michael's communication skills and his musicianship that has enabled him to bring about a greater understanding of blues music and the black experience.
