Born in 1950 in Brighton, England, Roger remains one of the UK's major exponents of the slide guitar.
At the age of 15 he was starting to play at folk clubs in the Brighton area. In 1968, continuing an interest in Country and Delta blues, he started his own club above "The Lewes Arms" in Lewes, Sussex. Along with fellow musicians Sam Mitchell and Dick Wardell, the club featured guest performances by Jo Ann Kelly and her brother Dave Kelly, Simon Prager, Steve Rye, Bob Hall, Graham Hine, Andy Fernbach and Tony McPhee (who was later to form the Groundhogs).
The club later moved to Brighton.

In 1971 Roger opened for Muddy Waters at The Gardener Centre, Brighton. He also appeared at the Cambridge Folk Festival and on the first pyramid stage at Glastonbury the same year.

In 1972 Muddy Waters was quoted in Sounds Magazine as saying,
"Roger Hubbard is as good as any blues guitarist in the U.K. or the United States".

His first album Brighton Belle Blues was recorded in 1970 by Nick Perls for his US Blue Goose label. Nick was a key figure on the American blues trail, rediscovering the likes of Son House and Skip James. Having played his 1935 National Steel Duolian for many years, Roger now plays an electric resonator guitar of his own design, known as "The Hub" as well as a steel resonator mandolin given to him by the AMI company in Munich.

Roger is currently gigging with his band Buick 6 as well as doing solo and duo work.

His song Home Lovin' Man was recorded by US blues man Eric Bibb on his 2003 album Natural Light .
