Buddy Guy is doubling down! The City of Chicago scaled back its Bluesfest to 3 days this year, but Buddy Guy’s Legends has a full week of blues action, including the Hall of Fame Blues Awards, the Chicago Blues Challenge, the Blues Today Symposium (with American Blues Scene and OnePatient Global Health Initiative) and the XRT Blues Breakers Bluesfest broadcast (featuring Johnny Winter, Ronnie Brooks and Todd Mohr, hosted by Tom Marker and Shemekia Copeland). And, of course, lots and lots of blues. In case you can’t make it to Chicago, we’re also streaming EVERY SHOW live all week long here.
Buddy won another Blues Music Award! He’s the 2014 B.B. King Entertainer Of The Year. Buddy is the all time record holder for number of BMAs received – he’s won so many that we’ve actually lost count!
We’ve got a handful of limited-edition “Meet Me In Chicago” January 2014 posters left, and we’re giving them away when you buy an autographed Fender Squier Affinity Strat. You also get a copy of Buddy’s newest double disc album, Rhythm & Blues. (The poster AND the CD are also signed by Buddy). Take a look here!
WYCC PBS Chicago is airing “A Special Evening With Buddy Guy” on the following dates. It’s tied in with the forthcoming TV series, “Buddy Guy’s Legends Presents The Chicago Blues.”
