Bluesdays: Albert Castiglia
July 26, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Albert Castiglia is back at Bluesdays in The Village at Palisades Tahoe.
The star is shining brightly these days on Albert Castiglia.
The Blues Music Awards named him 2022’s Best Blues Rock Artist and his 2020 record, “Masterpiece,” Best Blues Rock Album.” His latest album, “I Got Love” moved atop the blues charts for multiple weeks upon its March 25 release.
Although he presents an original sound on “I Got Love,” snatches of key inspirations do shine through from time to time.
This spring, Castiglia was one-half of The Blood Brothers Tour with Mike Zito, owner of Gulf Coast Records.
“They call me a ‘slinger,’ ” he said. “There’s an edge to what I do. I’m along the rock-blues vein.”
Castiglia is a 48-year-old Floridian. He began touring with Junior Wells at the age of 27 and has gone on to record 13 solo albums.
It all started when a 12-year-old Castiglia heard Muddy Waters’ album “Hard Again.”
“That’s the record that changed my life and when I knew I wanted to be a blues musician,” he said.
Castiglia also played at Bluesdays in 2018 and 2013.
