Mitchell Creek Rock N Blues Fest - George & Noriko

George & Noriko

George & Noriko break all the rules. The duo delivers a show that’s unique and unexpected.

Known as the Japanese Blues Cowboy and the Tsugaru shamisen player, they have been kicking up a storm wherever they play. George’s lightning-fast blues licks & growling harmonica enhanced by Noriko’s percussive sounds of the traditional shamisen (Japanese banjo) has morphed into a kind of bluegrass hard country blues with a Japanese twist.


The duo has won numerous awards and critical acclaim, featured on national TV, toured internationally, and have over a combined 50 million views on their YouTube channels!
