Adam's gigs + booking information

These days I work primarly as a duo with Alan Gross, as The Blues Doctors.  We are willing to travel to where the work is, including overseas.  


§for USA/Canada bookings, please contact Adam Gussow:

§for Europe/UK/Australia/Asia and all other bookings worldwide, please contact Peter Nelissen at BAFMusic:

As an experienced teacher and lecturer, I'm also delighted to offer my services for harmonica-related teaching events:  clinics, workshops, and the like; the OMB format, in such cases, lets me deliver a self-contained, concert-ready set of music--often with the help of a local guitar player--to complement the instructional portion of the event.  I'm ready, willing, and able to travel.  If you think you've got a gig for me, please don't hesitate to ask!
