"Olson managed a delicate blend of the grim boogie blues of John Lee Hooker, the wistful introspection of Bob Seger and the raw urgency of early Bob Dylan."
—San Francisco Chronicle

Hans Olson is a veteran performing musician with over fifty years in the music business. He began his career as a lead singer in a rock-and-roll band in Southern California in 1967. By 1970, he had developed a unique and powerful solo act. He plays an amplified acoustic guitar and harmonica and is known as one of the best “harp-in-a-rack” players in the world.

Olson’s singing is very powerful, and he is comfortable singing many styles of music, from mellow folk ballads to growling boogie blues. His songwriting is one of his most notable assets. He has recorded over one hundred of his songs on his seventeen record releases.

Olson has been a full-time performing musician since 1972. He has toured all over the world, but most of the time he travels the highways in Arizona, where he has an amazing reputation of being a solo act that can rock a nightclub all night long. He plays music in a wide variety of styles influenced by artists such as Muddy Waters, Johnny Cash, Woody Guthrie, Bruce Springsteen, Eric Burdon, Van Morrison, Bonnie Raitt, Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones, John Lee Hooker, John Hammond, and Tom Waits.

Tickets will go on sale to the public on Thursday, October 8 at 10:00 a.m.
