Buddy Guy – ‘Damn Right Farewell’ Tour

with special guest Samantha Fish ft. Jesse Dayton

Buddy Guy returns to UPAC in Kingston for the final time on his ‘Damn Right Farewell’ tour. Buddy Guy has been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, has influenced rock titans like Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, Gary Clark Jr, John Mayer, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and just about every guitar player who has played the Blues, Blues Rock, and Hard Rock over the past 70 years. He has pioneered Chicago’s fabled West Side sound and is still the living link to the city’s halcyon days of Electric Blues, from the late 1950s when he was in Chess Records’ House Band. It is the absolute truth to say that Buddy Guy is the last of the greats of the Blues performing today, who also brought the Electric Blues to the world, alongside Muddy Waters, BB King, John Lee Hooker, Albert King and many others from that time. Buddy Guy has released a steady stream of albums since then and has received 8 GRAMMY Awards-winning his 8th and most recent GRAMMY Award in 2018 for his 18th solo LP, “The Blues Is Alive And Well”, and the Lifetime Achievement GRAMMY Award in 2015.He has received 38 Blues Music Awards-the most any artist has ever achieved, the Billboard Magazine Century Award for distinguished artistic achievement, a ‘Kennedy Center Honor’, and the Presidential National Medal of Arts. Plus, Rolling Stone Magazine has ranked him #23 in its “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.” Not to be missed!
