Buddy Guy Live at St. Augustine Ampitheatre
April 9, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Legendary blues guitarist and singer Buddy Guy will be appearing with special guests The Rides, featuring Stephen Stills, Kenny Wayne Shephard, and Barry Goldberg, live at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre. Buddy Guy is 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 the city’s halcyon days of electric blues. Buddy has received 7 GRAMMY Awards, a 2015 Lifetime Achievement GRAMMY Award, 34 Blues Music Awards (the most any artist has received), the Billboard Magazine Century Award for distinguished artistic achievement, a Kennedy Center Honor, and the Presidential National Medal of Arts. Rolling Stone Magazine ranked him #23 in its “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time”. Buddy’s new studio album was released in July 2015 and debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Blues Albums chart.
