At 82 years old, Buddy Guy’s name has become largely synonymous with the blues.
The veteran guitarist and recording artist, whose latest album is The Blues Is Alive and Well, will take the Capitol Theatre stage at 7 p.m. Oct. 10. Tickets will be on sale June 28.
“I’m always trying to make an album that someone accidentally plays where some kid hears it, picks up a guitar and helps keep the blues alive,” says Guy.
A contemporary of blues icons like B.B. King and Muddy Waters, Guy is also regarded as a legend. The Blues Is Alive and Well features 15 tracks including “Bad Day” and “Somebody Up There.”
A 2016 Grammy-winner for his earlier album Born to Play Guitar, Guy will be joined at the October performance by Jimmie Vaughan. With 50 years in the music business Vaughan adds another reason for true blues fans to enjoy the show.
