Biography

Eric Garth Hudson (b. August 2, 1937 in Windsor, Ontario) is a Canadian musician. As the organist and keyboardist for Canadian-American rock group The Band, he was a principal architect of the group’s unique sound. A master of the Lowrey organ, Hudson’s orchestral tone sense and style anticipated many of the sonic advances of the polyphonic synthesizer. His other primary instruments are piano, electronic keyboards, tenor saxophone, soprano saxophone and accordion. He has been a much-in-demand session musician, performing with dozens of artists. He also plays in a duo with his wife, Maud, and in 2002 joined his friend Sneaky Pete Kleinow (d. January 6, 2007) in another group, Burrito Deluxe, an offshoot of The Flying Burrito Brothers. He also has his own twelve piece band, The Best!

    Buy his stuff, direct from him where possible. He doesn't deserve to be in dire financial straits. Genius. Inspiration. Legend.
