Joseph McGuinness is an Atlanta based folk blues musician. His incredible talent for fingerpicking and slide guitar work combined with his powerful soul-filled vocals and unique overall style, make for an amazing listening experience.Since releasing this award winning, highly acclaimed album, Joe has been hitting the Atlanta scene hard, amazing audiences with his acoustic guitar work, powerful voice, quarky song styling, and mockery of the banjo. Playing with many different musicians around Atlanta’s thriving music scene, and wowing crowds with his solo show, Joe decided to “step it up” and give yet another attempt at a band, hence the birth of The McGuinness Trio!
His latest effort, Tin Umbrella, is a full band sound with all the members of the Trio, Joe McGuinness, Aaron Trubic and Scott Callison, as well as guests musicians. As with each of Joe’s songs, these are a continuing journey in Joe’s life mixed with a unique collaboration with Oliver Wood on the title song.
