Buddy Guy (11/14/19)
A Music Hall/Music Without Borders Co-presentation, supported by WFUV
With generous sponsorship support from: Webster Bank
Opening Act: Tom Hambridge
The Blues Legend and Rock n’ Roll Hall of Famer, Buddy Guy returns in support of his most recent album The Blues Is Alive and Well. The record is arriving on the heels of a spate of high visibility for the 82-year-old performer: at the 2016 Grammys, he picked up a trophy for “Best Blues Album” honoring Born to Play Guitar, and that same year he hit the road for a U.S. tour opening for Jeff Beck. In addition to bringing the house down for a recent sold-out performance commemorating the closing of New York City's B.B. King's Blues Club and Grill, he recently appeared on David Letterman's Netflix talk show My Next Guest Needs No Introduction. A truly restless and energetic performer, The Blues Is Alive and Well is the latest triumph in an already-legendary career.
