Three time winner of "Best Blues" at the San Diego Music Awards Robin Henkel performs country blues with an intensity rarely seen in Southern California. Grounded in the blues of Mississippi 1930s-50s, Robin has built his own personal style drawing from the influences of Robert Johnson, Fred McDowell, Muddy Waters, Skip James and others.
An LA Times article commented that "Robin Henkel is a futurist and a historian."
360 Degrees said "Robin's live shows are nothing short of inspirational. There is something genuinely raw, base and animalistic about his gut-wrenching, honest music."
Robin has opened shows for Dizzy Gillespie, Bonnie Raitt, BB King, David Lindley, John Mayall, Dr John, Jr Wells, Warren Zevon, Arlo Guthrie, Charles Brown, Steve Stills and has performed with Johnny Almond, Big J McNealy, Jimmy Witherspoon, Sha Na Na, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Lowell Fulson and the San Diego Symphony.
