"...I happened to catch Mike Herman in Hudson, NY last night.
He has always been a stellar finger picking, piedmont style blues guitarist, but I was struck by the increased authority of his singing. He has been a solo performer for a few years now, following the breakup of the much beloved duo, The Hellhounds, and his "woodshedding" over numerous gigs in that span has clearly paid off. ..." - Mark Drnek
"I'm hearing Bob Dylan, Jorma Kaukonen, Leon Redbone, & some Guthrie when I'm listening to this guy!" ~ A New Friend & Fan Found at the Binghamton Mets Game, May 25th

"I received BluesnRags Bag o' Tabs Lesson Packet the other night. I was blown away with the accuracy of the tabs and your fantastic guitar playing on the demo CD. You really got it together! I would like to order another one..... You sound so good on the demo CD that I would also like to order both of your CD's....." ~ Joe
"Hey Mike love your cd too. You are the picker my friend, and 'Lorna Lee' made me cry. Hope we will play together again, God Bless"

Few experiences prove more meaningful than learning a musical instrument. Music offers a fun personal outlet that can improve performance in other areas of study, while providing a recreational and social outlet.
Mike offers up Finger-Pickin'-Good Acoustic Roots & Country Blues. It's like being on the front porch listening to Jorma Kaukonen, Jerry Garcia, and Taj Mahal belting out traditional songs & pickin' their derrieres off!!!
