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 has been a fixture on the Arizona music scene for more than 50 years. He fronted many bands in the 1960s and ’70s but now performs as a solo act. He has released more than 17 albums and toured extensively in the United States, Canada, and Europe.
Though he is a prolific songwriter proficient in many styles of music, Olson is mostly known as a blues musician. He plays an amplified acoustic guitar and a harmonica in a neck rack. He is considered one of the best “harp in a rack” players in the world.
