Buddy Guy at Golden State Theatre 2022
Friday, March 04, 2022 - 8:00pm
At age 82, 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. He has received 7 Grammy Awards, a 2015 Lifetime Achievement Grammy Award, 37 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.
Buddy Guy is a genuine American treasure and one of the final surviving connections to a historic era in the country’s musical evolution. He keeps looking to the future of the blues through his ongoing work with his 18-year-old protege, Quinn Sullivan.
