Guitarist George Worthmore has lived and made music in New York City, Johannesburg, and Sarasota.
It’s his decades spent in the first city that got him inducted into the New York Blues Hall of Fame as a Master Blues Artist.
As a star in the New York City music scene for over twenty years, began with a one-year stint as a guitarist with Kinky Friedman. He’s played backup guitar for Bo Diddley, Ben E. King, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, Lou Christy, and The Platters. He has also played shows as a second guitarist with Hot Tuna.
He emigrated to South Africa in 1997 where he owned and operated the world famous Blues Room, that country’s number one, award winning, live music venue.
Since 2004 he has expanded his performing into film and TV and has acted with William H. Macy, Robert Vaughn, and Ron Perlman.
His current show is a tour de force of solo acoustic guitar, from Ragtime to Blues, with some Bach thrown in for the more serious appreciators of the instrument. The music is interlaced with humorous comments and amusing stories about the songs and his experiences.
Nat Langston plays fingerstyle slide guitar, acoustic and electric. His first teachers were the great blues players of the Mississippi Delta and the Piedmont — Muddy Waters, John Hurt, Gary Davis, Robert Johnson, Blind Blake — and such classic country players as Sam McGee, Doc Watson, Merle Travis, Chet Atkins, and Jerry Reed. Besides playing solo, He often a performs as a duo with his mentor George Worthmore and with the Divebombers, Sarasota, Florida.
