Legendary blues guitarist and singer Buddy
Guy will play the Peace Center on Friday, Sept. 28, at 8 p.m. At age 81, Buddy
Guy is a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, a pioneer of Chicago's fabled West Side sound, and a living link to the city's golden days of electric blues.
Guy has received seven Grammy Awards, along with a Lifetime Achievement Grammy Award and 37 Blues Music
Awards - more than any other artist. He has been honored with the Billboard Magazine Century Award for distinguished artistic achievement, a Kennedy Center Honor and the Presidential National
Medal of Arts. Rolling Stone magazine ranks him No. 23 in its "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time."
The title of Guy's latest album says it all: The Blues Is Alive and Well. The legend's 18th solo LP and follow-up to 2015's Best Blues Album Grammy-winner, Born to Play Guitar, showcases his raw and unadulterated sound. The new album is the latest triumph in an already-legendary career.
A major influence on rock titans like Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton
and Stevie Ray Vaughan, Guy is a genuine American treasure and one of the final surviving connections to a historic era in the country's musical evolution.
