Buddy Guy at Longwood Gardens

Converted_file_d1b74fbd

The great bluesman Buddy Guy - a much deserved Kennedy Center honoree last year - plays Longwoood Gardens in Kennett Square tonight, along with his protege, the now 14 year old guitar whiz Quinn Sullivan.

The Louisiana-born Chicago-based Guy remains one of the most excting guitar players alive. He was once house guitarist at Chess Records, and played in Muddy Waters band before carrying on a partnership with the late harp player Junior Wells for many years. David Hiltbrand's preview of the show from Friday's Inquirer is here. A clip of him tearing it up on "First Time I Met The Blues" from 1970 is below, as is a clip of Guy - who turns 77 and releases his new album Rhythm & Blues this month - and the precocious Sullivan from 2007.

Show details are here. It goes on rain or shine. Guy also plays the Keswick on July 30.
