"Ernie Hawkins is an important link in the unbroken chain of blues and gospel artists. His guitaristry and love of the style is incomparable. From the Rev. Gary Davis into the future with his own style Ernie is one of the special ones!" -Jorma Kaukonen
Ernie Hawkins has played concerts, festivals, workshops, and millennium celebrations in the United States, Canada, Japan and Europe. He has hit every stop in the road from A Prairie Home Companion to Antone's and the Madrid Jazz Festival. Hawkins has played with blues greats including Son House, Mance Lipscomb, Fred McDowell, Jim Brewer, and the Rev. Gary Davis and appears on Maria Muldaur's Grammy and Handy Award nominated album Richland Woman Blues.
