Bargel is an innovative songwriter and blues poet par excellence. He possesses the expressiveness and integrity of the great stage artists. His singular and authentic play on the slide guitar and his demanding self-compositions have given him international recognition. On Stage, he celebrates the blues with tremendous intensity, strong stage presence and a magically rough voice.
