Who was/is Michael van Merwyk ? - CDs, Vinyl LPs, DVD and more

Michael van Merwyk

The German 6.7ft guitarist, slide guitar player, singer and songwriter has paid his dues on numerous tours and sessions all over Europe. His encounters with international greats and local heroes have led to an ever-deeper understanding of blues and roots music. He is a “Songster“ who travels from town to town to play his songs as a soundtrack to a night out in clubs, bars, joints, festivals and living-rooms.

A Songster is a wandering musician who plays a variety of folk songs, ballads, dance tunes and popular songs in order to make a little money. This predates the labels like “Bluesman“ and recalls a time, when there was no such thing as “musical genres“...just Musicianeers and Songsters playing for their audience to make them feel good.

MvM is a highly decorated and well established figure in the European music scene. Over the years he earned several awards like “Best Blues Singer“ or “Best Guitarplayer“ in Germany and even placed 2nd at the IBC in Memphis in 2013 as the first European Band in the long history of the award. He is equally at home in pubs, cafes, at Blues festivals, Singer/Song- writer festivals and private parties and always has the right songs for the right occasion. It ́s always about the music and the people.
