Buddy Guy & Jonny Lang
Buddy Guy returns by overwhelming demand after his incendiary performance at the Center for the Arts last April! At age 75, he’s a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, a major influence on rock titans like Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and Stevie Ray Vaughan, a pioneer of Chicago’s fabled West Side sound, and a living link to that city’s halcyon days of electric blues. He has received five Grammy Awards, 28 Blues Music Awards (formerly W.C. Handy Awards), the Billboard magazine Century Award for distinguished artistic achievement, and the Presidential National Medal of Arts. Rolling Stone ranked him in the top 30 of its “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.”
Don’t let 32-year-old Jonny Lang fool you – his appearance often belies the grizzled, blues-veteran voice that he is famous for. The Grammy-winning former child prodigy instrumentalist topped the Billboard New Artist chart with his first album at age 15 and was called “one of the most important artists to watch in the new millennium” by Time Magazine. Today, Lang has eight critically acclaimed albums under his belt, including the Grammy Award-winning Turn Around and his newest offering, Jonny Lang Live at the Ryman.
