Mitchhart’s musical journey began in his native Cincinnati, in Ohio. He developed his sound and stagecraft at the helm of four groups in Cincinnati — climbing the pinnacle of the city’s blues scene. He also began his recording career there, with 1993’s Blues Transfusion. Since then he has made a dozen more albums, culminating until now in 2009’s critically heralded Grown Ass Man and 2010’s Live from B.B. King’s. By the early 90’s he was the top blues act in Cincinnati. Nearly two decades later, that has not changed. Mitchhart’s name is still synonymous with “blues” in the most rapidly growing city along the Cumberland River and he is still playing 200 of his annual dates. Thanks to the international following he has largely built in Nashville at Bourbon Street Blues and Boogie Bar, Mitchhart has also performed in eight other countries.
