Living blues legend Buddy Guy to shred for Clearwater’s Ruth Eckerd Hall

Pay homage on March 19 after Little Feat opens.


At 82 years old, Buddy Guy is a direct and tangible connection to the beginnings of modern American music. The Chicago blues legend is taking a break from hanging out at his Windy City club to hit Ruth Eckerd Hall and honor the legacies of long-gone contemporaries like Otis Rush, Bobby Bland and B.B. King. Blues will forever hold countless mysteries within its scales and licks, but watching Buddy Guy play onstage is like watching the puzzle get solved right in front of your eyes. Don’t miss out on the chance.

Buddy Guy w/Little Feat. Tues. March 19. Ruth Eckerd Hall, Clearwater.
