    Acoustic- and electric-guitarist Terry Robb was born in British Columbia, Canada. Raised in the United States, he now makes his home in Portland, Oregon.

    While still in his twenties, Terry was performing with Ramblin' Rex of Frank Zappa- and Captain Beefheart-fame, and also the late John Fahey. In fact, Terry's work as player on and producer of Fahey's "Let Go" helped earn it a four-star review from "Rolling Stone" magazine.

    Terry has been a very successful session musician, guitarist, and producer ever since, with over a dozen albums to his name. Like Fahey, he's steeped in the history of the blues and roots music; he's an ethnomusicologist of the highest order.

    Terry has toured with Buddy Guy and Steve Miller, and has shared the stage with B.B. King, Joe Cocker, Bo Diddley, David Crosby and too many others to mention. All this and more has earned him a place in the Oregon Music Hall of Fame.
