About Woody Mann
Woody Mann had his first musical schooling in the living room of Rev. Gary Davis, the now legendary blues, gospel, and ragtime guitarist. He soon went on to perform and record with blues legends Son House and Bukka White and contemporary finger style wizard John Fahey while studying at the Juilliard School and with jazz great Lennie Tristano. Since then Mann has pursued a rich and diverse career ranging from playing with jazz great Attila Zoller, to accompanying songwriter Dori Previn, to giving guitar lessons to Paul Simon. He has recorded extensively, performed throughout the world, and schooled countless guitarists through his many books and DVDs. Acknowledging his artistry, the C.F. Martin guitar company has honored Woody with the release of the “WoodyMann” signature model guitar. Recently he co-produced the feature documentary film “Harlem Street Singer”, the story of Reverend Gary Davis, and has released two CD’s based on the soundtrack of the movie. Woody is widely recognized as one of the leading teachers and authorities of traditional blues music and a renowned guitar master with his own contemporary improvisational style.
